Grand Central Disruption Caused by Backpack of Garbage

A suspicious package that disrupted subway service during the morning rush hour at Manhattan’s Grand Central Terminal turned out to be a backpack containing garbage, the New York City Police Department said.

Subways on the 4, 5 and 6 lines bypassed the station while police dogs and the bomb squad investigated the package.
