The New York City Police Department gave the all clear following an investigation into a bomb threat at New York University (NYU) on the night of November 11.

This footage, filmed by Sophia Laila, shows large crowds of people gathered outside NYU’s Stern School of Business building.

A statement from NYU spokesman John Beckman said: “The police completed their investigation of the bomb threat that NYU received earlier this evening, having searched four NYU buildings and Hebrew Union College; they have issued an ‘all clear.’”

“We are pleased there was no danger to our people, but are deeply troubled by the series of bomb threats against universities (MIT and USC also received bomb threats today). They frighten people, waste municipal resources, and disrupt campuses,” Beckman said.
