Pope Francis arrives in New York.

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Pope Francis arrived in New York City Thursday and the city is ready.

Police Commissioner Bill Bratton did a security sweep himself of St. Patrick’s Cathedral ahead of the pope’s arrival, even inspecting the altar.

Francis’ plane landed at Kennedy Airport just after 5 p.m., and his helicopter landed in Manhattan just around 6 p.m.

“Today is really finishing touches,” Bratton told CBS2’s Andrea Grymes earlier Thursday. “He arrives late this afternoon. It begins today, really, the months of planning and you’ll see that planning in full evidence, full bloom if you may.”
