LOWER MANHATTAN — A suspicious package that drew the NYPD bomb squad to Wall Street Thursday has been determined to be two motorcycle batteries, police said.

A bomb squad crew responded to Water and Wall streets, according a tweet sent at 11:25 a.m. from the NYPD’s 1st Precinct.

Just before 12:30 p.m., police said the package was determined not to be threat but rather were two motorcycle batteries left behind on the sidewalk.

Police had told the public to stay away from the area while the investigation was underway, but once the all clear was given, police said pedestrian and vehicular traffic would be allowed back through the area.

“We’re investigating this package,” the precinct tweeted to PIX11 News at the time. “Don’t panic the worlds best Bomb Squad is on the scene.”
