Pace professor Joseph Ryan was quoted in an Associated Press article titled “NY-ers Still Living Behind Post 9/11 Checkpoints,” by Eva Dou.

It was picked up by nearly 200 publications including Yahoo.com, NBC, Fox, News Channel 10 and Huffington Post.  The article is about the security measures and checkpoints that were created after 9/11 and are still enforced today. It also details how some citizens feel these security measures restrict their daily lives.
