New York City’s most exclusive properties will be patrolled by heavily armed guards in case of a chaotic reaction to election results next week, according to reports.
Off-duty police officers are being hired to defend high-value residential buildings in Manhattan starting on Election Day and for the days and weeks to follow.
“Everybody is worried about security,” an inside source told the New York Post. “Every top building is adding security. It’s out of control. We hope it won’t be needed, but we will be ready.”
“There will be officers with submachine guns,” the source explained, speaking specifically about the Time Warner Center, where the penthouse is reportedly listed at $62.5 million.
“We’ve always had immense security, but there will be more. We’ll have extra patrols. The entire building can be shut down with one button.”
New York City police and the Department of Homeland Security are also working to secure the property and others in the city.
“The NYPD is advising buildings to get the extra security,” the Post’s source said. “They’ve never done this before.”
Management at the Manhattan House reportedly sent a letter to residents explaining that they are implementing a long-term strategy “to anticipate and mitigate the possibility of civil unrest and violence following the upcoming presidential election.”
“We hope the precautions won’t be needed but we will be ready,” the letter said.
Off-duty police officers are reportedly in higher demand than private security, as building managers are concerned after an unlicensed security guard allegedly shot and killed an unarmed demonstrator during a skirmish in Denver.
Many New Yorkers say they are fleeing the city ahead of the election, including one woman whose luxury condominium will be guarded by ex-Marine snipers stationed on rooftops in the neighborhood.
