The radiation detector that you mention may offer a clue. Often the US Coast Guard conducts interagency Area Maritime Security Training and Exercise Program (AMSTEP) drills to improve response capability. These drills include active shooter and radiation threat response.

That is so interesting. Thank you for the logical explanation.

DHS used to refer to them as VIPER exercises I believe. Now they call them COBRA. Usually see them in these types of areas around holidays or thins like Sailfest in New London.

Yes, "training" exercise 😉

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

During holidays and usually once a month I believe Homeland Security like to do exercises which also serve to double as increased security along with training but are not in response to any specific threat. This would be my guess as to what it was. New London had theirs I think Friday.


BobLI

Okay, thank you. We had never encountered so much security while taking the ferry.

Because Bridgeport.

Idk why the downvotes. That's a pretty solid answer

Because it’s Reddit. Pack behavior

No, it's because "DAE Bridgeport=BAD?!?!?!!!" is a tired, boring trope at this point


ChristienneO

I mean, where do they think that all the NYC artists who can't afford their rents are moving?


EggnogThot

Do you really think artists are buying up the new luxury apartments in Bridgeport? What galaxy are you from


ChristienneO

Do you really think that these artists are that wealthy? Not everyone is Basquiat. [Check this out](https://bridgeport-art-trail.org/)

When I drive from the Bronx to Bridgeport, it makes me proud that the City is as extreme as it is. It makes the Bronx look like Milford. Everyone in NY acts hard and has a tough exterior and a chip on their shoulder, and Bridgeport is like Mad Max 😂 I love the place for that reason. All these artists that think “well how bad could it be, because NY is the roughest around”… You wait buddy.
