NEW YORK -- NYPD has given the all clear after finding a pair of unattended packages at Time Warner Center Mall in New York City.

Around 8 p.m. Thursday, authorities announced via Twitter that they were investing the packages.

According to a tweet from New York City Police Department News, the Emergency Service Unit and the NYPD bomb squad were on scene, evaluating the packages as a precaution.

Part of the mall was evacuated, however theĀ first floor of the mall currently remained open.

As of 8:40 p.m. NYPD has given the all-clear, saying that there was no threat or danger.

However, NYPD encourages people to "continue to say something if you see something."

The Time Warner building is where CNN is located. It was partially evacuated Wednesday after a suspicious package containing a crude pipe bomb was delivered to the media company.

CNN personnel in the building Thursday stayed on the air while police checked things out.
