Posted: Updated:

UPDATE: The NYPD now confirms the suspicious package contained a novelty grenade mounted on a plaque. People are being allowed back into the building.

The New York Times reports that the gag grenade was hung on a plaque that had some cheeky office humor on it, reading, “Complaint department, pull pin.”

EARLIER: A World Financial Center building was evacuated while the NYPD investigated a suspicious package Thursday morning.

The package was delivered to 2 World Financial Center in lower Manhattan, home to Nomura Securities.

“People were a little nervous getting outside,” an employee at Nomura told The Wall Street Journal. “But once we left the building everything was fine. Everyone’s pretty calm right now.”
