A "pair of unattended packages" on Thursday evening prompted the evacuation of some areas inside the Time Warner Center Mall, the location of CNN's studios in New York City, according to the NYPD.
A few minutes after the NYPD said its bomb squad and Emergency Service Unit were on the scene, the police department said the mall was clear and there was "no threat or danger."

This is the this week that portions of the building were evacuated due to a potential threat.
On Wednesday, a courier dropped off a package containing a suspicious device to at CNN's New York office. The package was addressed to former CIA director John Brennan, who has appeared on CNN and MSNBC as a contributor.
An envelope containing white powder was reportedly also found with the device, according to NYPD Commissioner James O'Neill.
Law enforcement officials on Wednesday also intercepted improvised explosive devices that were sent to the residences of Bill and Hillary Clinton, former President Barack Obama, and the offices of Democratic Reps. Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Maxine Waters.
No injuries were reported. President Donald Trump called for national unity in a campaign speech on Wednesday following the discovery of explosive devices.
"Any acts or threats of political violence are an attack on our democracy itself," Trump said. "No nation can succeed that tolerates violence or the threat of violence as a method of political intimidation, coercion, or control.
