Person Of Interest In Subway Rice Cooker Scare Located

Person Of Interest In Subway Rice Cooker Scare Located Two suspicious packages were found at the Fulton Street and William Street subway station Friday morning and another was found near 16th and 7th Avenue in Chelsea. All three devices turned out to be rice cookers – the same make and model. Subways were delayed and the area was evacuated while NYPD officers, the MTA and the bomb squad investigated. Friday afternoon, police released a photo of the person of interest, who was seen on surveillance footage pushing a shopping cart near Fulton Street.

President Donald Trump said he is ready to help New York extend the Second Avenue subway in New York City, an announcement that left even state Governor Andrew Cuomo baffled.

“Looking forward to helping New York City and Governor @andrewcuomo complete the long anticipated, and partially built, Second Avenue Subway,” President Donald Trump said in a tweet.

Cuomo’s office on Saturday said that while the governor is involved in discussions with the president and the Department of Transportation about several infrastructure projects in the city, including the Gateway Tunnel project, the subway and updates at LaGuardia Airport, there have been no concrete steps taken to move forward.

“The president’s tweet suggests good news but we have no specific funding or approval and that is all that is relevant,” Communications Director Dani Lever said in a statement. "If an agreement actually materializes, we will provide an update.”

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority plans to extend the subway line for 8.5 miles north, from East 96th Street to 125th Street in east Harlem, and add three underground stations. The line, debated for decades, began service in January 2017.
