New York, the city that never sleeps, was victim of yet another terror attack wherein at least eight people were killed and about a dozen more were injured.

She tweeted, "Nyc. As resilient as ever. I Love u. My condolences to everyone affected by this tragedy. This happened 5 blocks from my home, As I drive back home from work,Dreary sirens remind me that this is the state of the world #nyc #peace."

At least eight people died and 15 others got injured after an attacker drove a rented truck onto a bike path near the site of the World Trade Center memorial in Manhattan.

A senior law enforcement official said that the Federal authorities were treating the incident as a terrorist attack.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said at a news conference, "Based on information we have at this moment, this was an act of terror, and a particularly cowardly act of terror aimed at innocent civilians."

Officials said it was the deadliest terrorist attack in New York City since 9/11.
