Streets in Times Square have been reopened after police briefly shut down 8th Avenue between West 42nd Street and West 44th Street to investigate a potentially suspicious vehicle.
A bomb squad cleared the vehicle and cops gave the all clear just before 2 p.m. Residual traffic delays may cause slight problems for drivers, however.
Earlier, law-enforcement officials told NBCNewYork a preliminary license plate check posed questions, but there was nothing visibly suspicious about the vehicle.
No further information was immediately available.
