As a “precautionary measure,” the NYPD asked residents at the site of the second suspicious device on 27th Street to evacuate the area. People have been urged to stay away from windows as police proceed to “clear the suspicious package.”

While NY city mayor Bill de Blasio previously claimed that there was “no specific and credible threat against New York City,”the discovery of the second package could challenge that claim, especially after another improvised device exploded on Saturday morning in New Jersey, just across the Hudson river.
“Actually, it was a very loud explosion that has shaken the entire building. The area was packed with the people and the security [guards] have evacuated everyone within five minutes,” Camelia Entekhabifard, an eyewitness, told RT on Sunday.
“It’s not a common thing in Manhattan, I’ve been here even during 9/11 and I guess that sort of memory has been washed off, and I’m feeling that this explosion will have an impact not only on the people but on the [UN] General Assembly which is starting on Monday.”
