Police have said that a suspicious package spotted in Lower Manhattan was, in fact, two motorcycle batteries.
The suspicious object at the corner of Wall and Water streets led to an NYPD bomb squad investigation around noon on Thursday, which the police revealed on Twitter with a bomb emoji.

After an investigation that lasted approximately an hour, the police reopened the streets to normal vehicle and pedestrian traffic, the NYPD reported.
This is one of several area bomb scares in recent months, with the most recent happening in January when nine New Jersey schools were evacuated due to bomb threats.
