Times SquareThe NYPD is scouring through Facebook and other social media sites, looking for any plans of “wilding” in Times Square this Sunday night.

It’s part of Easter Sunday annual ritual in which the Bloods, Crips and other gang members attend the auto show at the Javits Center.

They then go looking for trouble in Times Square.

Cops have been able to keep a lid on the problems the past two years.

But in 2010, three people were shot and 54 arrested in Times Square.
