Suspicious packages deemed safe, NYPD says; Expect residual delays on trains service

But they keep finding them. It’s up to 3 now..

 Suspicious packages found in a busy Manhattan train station Friday morning have been deemed safe after an NYPD investigation prompted the evacuation of the station and service changes and delays on several subway lines.

Police were called to the Fulton Street station after two pressure-type cookers were found, sources tell PIX11. They are currently being x-rayed inside the station, sources said.

The NYPD Counterterrorism Bomb Squad has since deemed the suspicious packages safe.

There is currently no service on the Nos. 2 and 3 trains between Chambers St and Atlantic Av-Barclays Center in both directions.

A, C, J, Z, and Nos. 2, 3, 4 and 5 trains are not stopping at Fulton St in both directions.

No. 2 trains are running on the No. 5 line between Nevins St and 149 St-Grand Concourse in both directions.

The last stop on southbound No. 3 trains will be Chambers St or South Ferry.

For alternative routes, consider using the R, W, 4 or 5 trains.


 

People also advised expect a heavy presence of emergency personnel in the area of Fulton and Williams streets in Manhattan as investigation continues.

The station is a busy transit hub a few blocks from the World Trade Center.
