A suspicious package inspection at Grand Central Terminal disrupted subway service and prompted the evacuation of a subway train platform on Memorial Day, authorities said.
Authorities were called around 11:30 a.m. about a “cylindrical” package on the platform of the No. 7 line at the East 42nd Street transit hub, police officers said.
The platform was evacuated, police said.
The NYPD’s EMS unit and bomb squad were called to the scene, police said.
Authorities confirmed the unit was cleared by 1:15 p.m
They had no concrete information about the “package” or its contents. But sources said it was just old plastic containers with wood attached.
During the investigation, No. 7 train service was suspended in both directions between Manhattan and Queens. the MTA tweeted.
The service has since resumed the agency later wrote.
