New York police have determined that a suspicious package that triggered a midday evacuation Friday of three blocks in the busy streets of Times Square contained only water bottles.

The package has now been removed and Times Square has been reopened to pedestrian and vehicles after about an hour.

The police stated that they are not taking any chances by putting anyone at risk and just did the correct action to deal with such.

The package, a cooler, was left in front of the Marriott Marquis hotel at 46th Street and Broadway. The bag was discovered at 12:42 p.m., Detective Mindy Diaz said.
