Skyscraper Evacuated After Suspicious Package

A Manhattan skyscraper across the street from the former World Trade Center was evacuated today after delivery of a package that was suspected of containing a bomb.

The NYPD Bomb Squad gave the all-clear hours later when it was discovered the package contained a novelty item in the shape of a grenade. The item was mounted on a plaque that said “Complaint Dept. Pull Pin.”

Two World Financial Center was back to business by afternoon. The building sits in the shadow of the construction of One World Trade Center on the site of the former twin towers.
