Traffic has been reopened in both directions on the Brooklyn Bridge after it was shut down for several hours Saturday afternoon when a man climbed to the top of a tower near the Manhattan side of the bridge.

It was unclear how the man got there. Several police officers from the NYPD's Emergency Services Unit were seen on the tower talking to the man before he came down.

The man was taken away in ambulance. No word yet on whether he will face any charges.
