After the Chelsea bombing this past weekend, it’s no surprise the city is on high alert. When it was reported this morning that a suspicious package was found on the corner of East 12th and Avenue A, the NYPD’s bomb squad was sent to investigate and Avenue A was shut down between 12th and 13th Streets.
Luckily, this was no IED. According to a tweet from Fast Company writer Christine Champagne, cops found nothing in the package but broken glass and golf balls.
Golf balls on Avenue A? That would’ve seemed suspicious some years ago. These days? Not so much.
