NEW YORK - The bomb squad of the New York Police Department
says a suspicious cooler in Times Square is not a threat.
Streets have been reopened to traffic.
Earlier, police closed the area off while they investigated a suspicious package near New York City's Time Square.
Police say the bomb squad responded to the area near 46th Street and Broadway to examine what appeared to be a small, white cooler left on a sidewalk.
Several streets were closed as a precaution because the cooler was found a few blocks from where a smoking SUV and failed car bomb was found Saturday night.
