Penn Station closed 1 hour over suspicious package


NEW YORK (AP) — New York's Penn Station has reopened after a brief evacuation while authorities investigated a suspicious package.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority says the Manhattan station, one of the nation's busiest transit hubs, was evacuated Thursday night after the suspicious package was reported about 10 p.m.

Police gave the all clear about an hour later.

While the station was closed, Long Island Railroad service was suspended between Penn Station and the Jamaica section of Queens. After it reopened, some residual delays were expected.
