NYC Federal Courthouse To Finally Get Proper Security

A federal courthouse in Manhattan is getting a security upgrade nearly a dozen years after the Sept. 11th terrorist attacks. A 4,500-square-foot glass-and-steel structure will be built outside the courthouse. Security officers will screen people for weapons and explosives there. Chief Judge Loretta Preska said the General Services Administration had to "scour the country" for $10 million left over from other projects. Several terrorism trials have been conducted at the courthouse. It's just a few blocks from the World Trade Center site. Construction will begin this fall and end in April 2015.
