BOSTON (WHDH) - The bombing in New York City brought back memories of the Boston Marathon bombing.
The two share some similarities.
For those who lived through the Boston Marathon Bombing, what happened in NYC Saturday night brought back horrific memories from Patriot’s Day 2013.
Former State Police Colonel Timothy Alben was at the front lines of the investigation.
“Well it sounds very familiar obviously,” said Alben. “They’re looking at explosives, the discussion over pressure cookers, so it brings up a lot of memories from the Boston Marathon bombing…”
He said that what they’re trying to do in NYC is collect all the evidence to find out who’s responsible.
Alben believes that since events like the marathon bombing and other terror attacks, security has increased great at concerts, sporting events and popular tourist destinations.
He also believes the concern now should be other areas that may be more vulnerable, like the NYC neighborhood Saturday.
