    The President is in town and even though you may not see him you'll certainly feel his presence.

    NYC Transit sent out a travel advisory warning of severe bus and subway delays expected as a result of street closures implemented by the U.S. Secret Service and NYPD for President Obama’s visit to Manhattan.

    Specifically, local and express bus routes in Lower and Midtown Manhattan are expected to be either severely delayed or detoured between 2 p.m. and 10 p.m., particularly the M1, M2, M3, M4, M5, M7, M9, M11, M14/14A/14D, M15, M20, M21, M31, Q32, M50, M66, M72, M98, M101, M102, M103, M104, BxM1, BxM2, BxM3, BxM4, BxM6, BxM7, BxM7a, BxM9, BxM10 and BxM11.

    Also, some subway station entrances and exits along the motorcade route may be temporarily closed. The NYPD hasn't released exactly which streets will be closed, but "The View," which Obama will appear on for a taped episode airing Thursday, tapes on West 66th Street off West End Avenue.

    The advisory urges commuters to schedule in extra travel time and call NYC Transit’s Travel Information Center for the latest information.
