Trump supporters initially planned to rally, but as of writing, only counter-protesters have been seen in or around the area.

At 11:28am, the MTA tweeted that “M5, M7, M10, M12, M20, and M104 buses have resumed making regular stops in Midtown and on the Upper West Side after earlier protests at Columbus Circle,” though they added that commuters should “Expect delays in both directions as we get buses back on schedule.”

The area appears to have been cleared out by the early afternoon.
