Sniffer dogs found an area of interest near some lockers, but after a sweep the area was given the all clear.</p> <p><blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>PHOTOS of the Statue of Liberty evacuation <a href="http://t.co/iLd7aegwwU">http://t.co/iLd7aegwwU</a> Credit: <a href="https://twitter.com/flyingtigers">@flyingtigers</a> <a href="http://t.co/j5I7apelZ3">pic.twitter.com/j5I7apelZ3</a></p>— NBC New York (@NBCNewYork) <a href="https://twitter.com/NBCNewYork/status/591702955608408065">April 24, 2015</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script></p>
