NEW YORK – Police say a portion of the Port Authority Bus Terminal in Manhattan has reopened after being evacuated for about 45 minutes following a report of a suspicious package.
Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Police spokesman Joe Pentangelo says the package was cleared around 3:30 p.m. and the closed portion of the terminal was reopened.
It was closed earlier after a police dog alerted officers to what police believed was a suspicious package that was wrapped in brown paper in front of a bar at the bus terminal.
The PABT serves as the main gateway for buses into New York City. It’s the largest terminal in the United States.
