That's right near where the car bomb was.

Suspicious Package Clears Portion Of Times Square
Abandoned Cooler Leads To Closures At 46th Street & Broadway

(5/7/2010)
Authorities have roped off a portion of Times Square on Friday afternoon after a suspicious package was found, CBS 2 has learned.
The package was found at 46th Street and Broadway, just a few blocks from where the smoking SUV and failed car bomb was found Saturday night.
The package is said to be a small cooler left on the sidewalk in front of the Marriott Marquis Hotel.

  

An explosive cooler?

Seeing everything going on all over the world, volcanoes, terror scares, debt crisis, floodings, drought, even around our immediate neighbors (earthquake in Chile, huge flooding in Brazil)...

People in Argentina need to be a little more thankful.

As of 1430 local time, the Times Square has been given the ALL CLEAR, meaning the situation has been reckoned with and all normal activity may resume.
