The Brooklyn Bridge is shut down in both directions as police respond to an abandoned vehicle.
An unattended, Manhattan-bound SUV was being investigated by the police bomb squad, said New York Police Lieutenant John Grimpel. The historic bridge had been closed since 5:15 p.m.
"The bomb squad is responding to deem it safe or unsafe," Grimpel said.
WCBS Radio's traffic correspondent reported the vehicle had no license plates. With all lanes of the bridge, including pedestrian walkways, closed in both directions at the end of a holiday weekend, traffic was thick and backed up around the bridge, WCBS Radio reported.
