"We have to strike that balance between security and making sure all New Yorkers are able to get around that very busy area of the city. I am sure working with the Secret Service, we will come up with a good solution to it as we usually do," NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill was quoted as saying by the broadcaster Thursday following the meeting with the Secret Service.
He also expressed his concern about current obstacles for traffic on Fifth Avenue that is filled with barricades and armed officers.
"I’ve been up there numerous times. It is challenging," O’Neill said.
Protests have taken place daily in several US cities since Trump’s victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton in the US presidential elections. Although Trump received 290 electoral votes compared to Clinton’s 232, she won the popular vote.
