"I'm prepping for a terrorist attack in NYC."

Jay is the New York Family man prepper originally from Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. His family now lives in the in Manhattan and he believes that New York City is due for a terrorist attack, and his main focus is planning to get his family to safety at their bug out location.

Jay was only blocks from the World Trade Center on 9/11 when he witnessed the collapse of the towers and the pandemonium that broke out on the city streets. He is preparing for a dirty bomb attack and wants to ensure that he will be able to get his family to safety. He runs through his plan with a preparedness expert who teaches him how to assess wind direction so he can avoid toxic debris, and how to filter water from the fountain in Washington Square Park. Jay’s main priority is making his way uptown to reunite with his family. They have set up a safe house in the Hamptons, where they plan to bug out following an attack.
