Spectators Surround Trump Tower

CBS2’s Valerie Castro has more.

I HAD TO CHECK IT OUT.
THAT'S A SHORT LIST.
THIS IS A NEW ONE.
Reporter: THANK YOU SO MUCH
FOR YOUR TIME.
STARTING TO GET WORD OF THIS
COMING TO CHECK IT OUT, OUT OF
CURIOSITY.
SOME HAVE WALKED BY AND
FIGURED OUT WHAT'S GOING ON?
THERE'S STILL A STRONG
POLICE PRESENCE HERE,
AMBULANCES ARE IN PLACE TO BE
PREPARED FOR WHAT MAY HAVE
LATER.
FIFTH AVENUE IS SHUT DOWN
BETWEEN 57th AND 56th.
WE SAW AN AMBULANCE DOWN 56th
STREET.
THEY ARE IN PLACE.
AGAIN, LOTS OF PEOPLE STOPPING
AND WONDERING EXACTLY WHAT'S
GOING ON.
SOME HAVE ASKED ME?
DONALD TRUMP CLIMBING THE SIDE
OF THE BUILDING?
OF COURSE WE KNOW HE WAS IN
VIRGINIA EARLIER TODAY.
WILL BE IN FLORIDA TONIGHT FOR
A CAMPAIGN EVENT.
AGAIN, UNCLEAR WHAT IN MAN'S
MOTIVATIONS ARE, IF THEY ARE
POLITICAL OR NOT.
IT'S UNCLEAR.
A MAN WHO LOVES TO TWEET SO
FAR HAS NOT TWEETED ANYTHING
ABOUT THIS.
THIS IS TRUMP TOWER IN
MIDTOWN.
I WANT TO ASK YOU, ARE YOU
GETTING A SENSE OF URGENCY ON
THE GROUND FROM THE NYPD OR
DOES IT SEEM TO JUST BE A
WATCH AND WAIT SITUATION
SCENARIO?
YOU HAVE PEOPLE JUST WATCHING
JUST OUT OF SHEER CURIOSITY
BUT IS THERE A SENSE OF
URGENCY WITH THIS MAN
CLIMBING.
Reporter: AT FIRST THERE
WAS A SENSE OF URGENCY GETTING
THE METAL BARRICADES IN PLACE
TO KEEP THE SPECTATORS AWAY.
PORTION OF THE STREET IS
CLOSED AND PORTION STILL OPEN.
THERE WAS AN URGENCY TO SECURE
THE SCENE, KEEP EVERYONE SAFE.
RIGHT NOW, HERE ON THE WEST
SIDE OF THE TOWER, IT'S VERY
MUCH A WAIT-AND-SEE.
THEY HAVE RESOURCES IN PLACE
READY TO USE IF NEED BE AS WE
MENTIONED.
THERE ARE PARAMEDICS HERE BUT
THEY ALL SEEM TO BE WAITING
FOR THE NEXT ORDER OF
BUSINESS.
WHAT THEY SHOULD BE READY FOR,
WHAT THEY NEED TO BE READY FOR
IN THE NEXT MINUTES AND
POSSIBLY HOPEFULLY NOT HOURS
BUT IT'S A WAIT-AND-SEE AT
THIS POINT.
VALLEY, I'M SORRY, IF YOU
SAIDTY MISSED, WHAT'S YOUR
LOCATION AND EXACTLY WHAT CAN
YOU SEE FROM WHERE YOU ARE ON
THE GROUND, VALERIE?
Reporter: MAURICE, WE ARE
STANDING ON FIFTH AVENUE JUST
SOUTH OF 56th STREET.
SNOW MAN IS CLIMBING ON THE
56th STREET SIDE.
THE BUILDING — THERE'S A
CORNER ON THE BUILDING SO IT'S
HARD FOR US TO SEE EXACTLY
WHERE HE IS.
HE IS AROUND THE CORNER OF THE
BUILDING FROM WHERE WE ARE.
BUT OF COURSE, THE BASE OF
TRUMP TOWER IS SURROUNDED WITH
EMERGENCY CREWS AND THE NYPD.
AGAIN, IT'S TOUGH TO SEE WHERE
THIS MAN IS FROM WHERE WE'RE
STANDING BUT PEOPLE ARE STILL
STOPPING AND LOOKING AND
TAKING PICTURES EVEN THOUGH
YOU CAN'T SEE FROM HERE.
A LOT OF PEOPLE JUST STOPPING
