Main Manhattan bus terminal all clear after 'suspicious package' evacuation

Main Manhattan bus terminal all clear after 'suspicious package' evacuation
Part of Manhattan's Port Authority Bus Terminal was evacuated over a "suspicious package" Thursday evening. Social media were immediately flooded with pictures of passengers flooding nearby streets, but the station reopened after an hour.

The south wing of the terminal was evacuated, with buses outside dropping off pedestrians on the sidewalk, according to WABC-TV in New York. After about an hour, authorities gave the all clear to have the terminal return to normal operations.

In the picture below, passengers wait on the sidewalk at West 40th Street and 8th Avenue in Manhattan as all doors to the bus terminal have been closed while an investigation is underway.
