‘Suspicious Package’ in Times Square Leads to Evacuation, Deemed Non-Threatening


Several midtown blocks in Times Square were evacuated briefly tonight so that the bomb squad could investigate a “suspicious package” — a paper bag left on top of a brown box — near the Morgan Stanley building on West 48th Street and Broadway. The area was reopened after police determined that the package was just garbage, according to the NYPD. [NYP]
