New York City is planning a 3,000 public and private camera surveillance system patterned on London's so called â€œRing of Steelâ€ to monitor security in Lower Manhattan.

Implications - If the plan goes through, there will be a license plate-reader and about 3000 public/private security cameras below Canal Street. New York City's polic commissioner Raymond W. Kelly believes that this block is critical to the economy of the nation and would prefer to make it less vulnerable to crime within the city. It's a controversial plan considering how many feel that privacy is a right.
