Most New Yorkers were probably at home watching the Oscars, but those out and about might have noticed a hiccup in the MTA last night. Trains started skipping Grand Central Station last night, and the Times Square Shuttle was shut down over a bomb scare, DNAinfo reports. At 9:40, a spokesman confirmed that services were down for "an NYPD investigation" but wouldn't say more; at 10:15, another confirmed it had been a bomb scare of some kind.
While the media largely missed the incident, reports of it did light up Twitter.
A bomb scare closed New York's Grand Central Station during the Oscars ceremony last night after a man reportedly called 911 claiming a device 'would explode in 13 minutes'.
There were also initial reports the station had been evacuated and confusion reigned as neither the MTA, NYPD or Metro North would confirm the cause of the emergency.
