Times Square Bomb Threat Leads To Condé Nast Evacuation

We didn’t know anyone was actually working this week, but anyone who decided to go in to Condé Nast‘s Times Square headquarters today got a nasty surprise.

A suspicious looking van caused a bit of a bomb scare near the site of the New Year Eve ball drop today, and workers from a few buildings — including Condé Nast’s building and NASDAQ’s HQ — were reportedly asked to evacuate into the freezing cold.

New York police later gave the all clear after the van was discovered to only contain clothing, The New York Times reports.
