Metro-North service into Grand Central suspended

Metro-North Railroad service into and out of New York City’s Grand Central Terminal was suspended Wednesday morning after a reported building explosion near the railroad’s tracks.

New York City firefighters are investigating a possible explosion at a building at 116th St. and Park Avenue in Manhattan that was reported at about 9:30 a.m.

Aaron Donovan, spokesman for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, said MTA workers were removing debris from the building that fell onto the tracks. Donovan said the stoppage is a precaution. Trains are being instructed to stop at the nearest station where conductors will be given further orders, he said. The nearest station to Grand Central is the Harlem-125th St. station.

Donovan said it’s unclear when traffic into Grand Central will resume, but he expects traffic will return to normal in time for the evening commute.
