From the 1993 World Trade Center bombing to 9/11, and more recently, the Times Square bomber, terrorists have repeatedly targeted Manhattan.
Now Iran, the world's largest state sponsor of terror, is reportedly taking aim.
A recent warning about the threat posed by Iran and its terror proxy, Hezbollah, came from lawmakers on Capitol Hill.
"We know Hezbollah operatives are here," Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., told a House committee on homeland security in March.
"The question is whether these Hezbollah operatives have the capacity to carry out attacks on the U.S. homeland and how quickly they can become fully operational," he said.
King said hundreds of operatives are here and that some Iranian diplomats stationed at the United Nations are much more than they appear.
"Several of their comrades in the U.N. mission in New York were sent back to Iran after the NYPD caught them photographing the city's rail systems in the years since 9/11," he said.
According to one NYPD official, there have been at least five other instances of what he called "hostile reconnaissance" against New York City by Iranian agents.
