Cops have closed part of Times Square because a raggedy, tarp-obscured white van has been parked there two days, suspiciously. Well. If you had a parking spot in Times Square you wouldn't move, either. [CBS] UPDATE: Prestigious evacuations!
UPDATE 2: They've given the all-clear! Although the lazy Conde Nasties will probably take the day off, claiming palpitations. A tipster sent us this insta-update:
