“NY Ave blocked off at 14th NW. Lots of @SecretService. Any idea what’s up? bomb squad is here”

From AlertDC:

“MPD reports 15th St NW between H St and G St NW and New York Ave NW between 14th St and 15th St NW is closed due to police activity. Alternate routes are 13th St, I St and F St NW. Please follow police directions and expect delays.”

Updates when more is known released. Hopefully a suspicious package that turns out to be nothing as if often the case.

“Bomb squad heading into 1440 New York Ave parking garage”


Update 1pm from East of NoMa Bro:


  • TinkerTaylor

    I think those are the DC offices of Skadden Arps

    • Michael Pierce

      AKA Skarps.

  • Admo_Anon

    I work around WH, and we received email about a suspicious package being found, and so they’re shutting down the area.

  • Charlene

    DCPD tweeted 2 hours ago that it was cleared, non-threatening. Well they said 15th/Penn but am assuming that’s close enough. My brother-in-law works at Skadden and husband’s at Treasury across the street, so I’ve been glued to this since the last update
