Gov. Andrew Mark Cuomo has said, “There’s going to be a curfew in New York City that we think could be helpful.” “More importantly,’ he said, “there is going to be an increase in the force in NYC.” (The number of police on duty tonight will double, from 4k to 8k).”

Cuomo said this on a radio interview and that the curfew will be in effect from 11 PM to 5 PM.
