Parts of Times Square, New York City, were cordoned off this morning due to reports of a suspicious package.
Shimon Prokupecz, a producer with WNBC-TV, reports that the NYPD has since given the all clear and the area is being reopened.
Police activity was centered near the Thomson Reuters building at 3 Times Square, and a number of Reuters employees tweeted images from the scene:
