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.”
