New York - The New York Police Department says it's aware of a newly released ISIS video showing images of Times Square but says there's no current or specific threat to the city.

An NYPD spokesperson says in a statement issued on Wednesday that some of the video footage is old but the video reaffirms the message the city remains a top terrorist target.

He says the police department will remain vigilant and continue to work with the FBI and the intelligence community.

The NYPD says it will continue to deploy additional counterterrorism teams throughout the city.

Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo says he has directed state agencies to "enhance their preparedness."
