    New York (CNN) -- Police blocked off a section of Times Square and evacuated some buildings Wednesday as they investigated a suspicious white van that may have been parked in the same spot for one or two days.

    According to Detective Martin Speechly of the New York Police Department, an illegal plaque is displayed in the front window of the van, and a tarp is covering the inside. There is also no license plate on the rear of the vehicle, Speechly said.

    Video footage showed officials examining the van, which was parked at 42nd Street and Broadway.

    Nasdaq evacuated, streets cordoned off: reports

    SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) -- The Nasdaq stock market was evacuated and the area cordoned off on Wednesday after a suspicious-looking van in Times Square triggered concerns, according to media reports. The New York Police Department bomb squad is investigating the van while the area around 42nd Street between Seventh Avenue and Broadway has been blocked off, the reports said. The van is a 1992 Dodge with tinted windows and a placard from a nonexistent law enforcement agency is on the dashboard, according to the Associated Press. The vehicle has no license plates, the news agency said.

    Times Square gets all-clear after van investigation

    New York (CNN) -- Police concluded that a suspicious white van parked on Times Square posed no threat and reopened the flow of traffic that had temporarily been interrupted Wednesday.

    Police blocked off a section of the famous square and evacuated some buildings as they investigated the vehicle, which had apparently been parked in the same spot for one or two days.

    According to Detective Martin Speechly of the New York Police Department, an illegal plaque was displayed in the front window of the van, and a tarp was covering the inside. There was no license plate on the rear of the vehicle, Speechly said.

    Video footage showed officials examining the van, which was parked at 42nd Street and Broadway.

    Security in the area is tight as preparations are made for the huge New Year's Eve celebration that will be held there Thursday night. The party is usually attended by thousands of people.
