A teenager pointed out to his friend on the corner: It’s spelled out on the truck, Bomb squad!
Cops taped off a section of Broadway between 21st and 23rd streets by the Bel-Aire Diner this afternoon after a bomb scare. There were NYPD cars and trucks, ambulances and I even saw a state trooper. And there was the bomb squad.
Turned out, according to the New York Post, the suspicious object was a pot of spaghetti.
A few notes:
- Get Christie Love, I see now, will be filming along 36th Avenue all the way from 12th Street to 24th Street, and apparently all day Wednesday. Not sure if these additional posters were up before.
- The team of Suraj Patel, who is challenging Rep. Carolyn Maloney in the Midterm primary, did some poster plastering in the area.
- Maloney, meanwhile, is done questioning whether vaccines cause autism.
