The officers' alleged negligence cannot support municipal liability as it involved discretionary acts in managing pedestrian and vehicular traffic undertaken in furtherance of public safety (McLean v City of New York, 12 NY3d 194, 203 ; Balsam v Delma Eng'g Corp., 90 NY2d 966, 968 ; Lamot v City of New York, 62 AD3d 572 ).
