New York City’s Fulton Center transit hub, one of the busiest in the city and a major subway connection in Lower Manhattan, was evacuated during Friday’s rush hour as police responded to reports of suspicious packages.

Two pressure cookers were found in the subway complex, the New York Police Department’s transit division said, but were later cleared as not dangerous.

Another item was found on a Chelsea street, on 7th Avenue and 16th street, the New York Times reported.

The investigation snarled the eight train lines which converge at the hub, near New York’s financial district and just blocks from the World Trade Center site. Nearly 93,000 passengers pass through the station on the average weekday, according to agency statistics.
