Interesting development which will probably turn out to be nothing but I'll blog it anyway.
All trains (LIRR, Amtrack, PATH) in and out of Penn Station, New York have stopped running. There is "police activity" at the NY/NJ bridges and tunnels.
I'm trying to dig something up other than the phone call we just got from my boss's son.
I'm sure it will end up being a false alarm. Goes with the heightened terror alert territory, I suppose.
UPDATE (thanks to Faith)
A portion of Penn Station has been evacuated Tuesday, after police received reports of a suspicious package aboard an Amtrak train.
The train in question, Amtrak No. 174, originated in Washington D.C. and is headed for Boston. During its regularly scheduled stop in Manhattan this morning, officials were notified of a suspicious package and passenger.
Prediction: The box will contain either a)cookies b)some college kid's dirty laundry or c) nothing.
