Times Square has been evacuated from West 44th to West 47th Streets after the police received reports of a suspicious package at Broadway and West 46th Street at about 12:45 p.m.The package appeared to be a small, white cooler, The Associated Press reports.
It was the second suspicious-package call and at least partial evacuation in the area today.
… but it looks like quite a pattern of nervousness has developed around Times Square.There’ve been seven such suspicious-package calls in the last few days.
That car bomb the other day didn’t go off, but it’s having an effect.
It all came out OK in the end.
