NEW YORK (AP) -- New York City Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly says there is no evidence that the Boston Marathon bombing suspects were targeting New York. But he says one may have been planning to party in the city after the attack.

Kelly said Wednesday that 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev traveled to New York at least once last fall. There is a photo of the suspect in Times Square but no evidence that he was looking at possible targets.

Kelly says he was told Tsarnaev may have been intending to come to New York to party, or for a party, sometime after the bombings. But Kelly said it's not clear if any specific plans were made.

The commissioner says the information was gleaned through interviews with the suspect.

Tsarnaev's older brother, Tamerlan (TA'-mehr-luhn), died in a shootout with police.
