The alert was called in to police at around noon local time. Officers have since cleared a two-block area around the building, which is located on First Avenue in Manhattan.

The object was later reported to be a box of flowers, according to preliminary information shared by police with reporters.

Turk Evi (Turkish House) only opened to the public last month. Located in the embassy-heavy East Midtown neighborhood on United Nations Plaza, it had been under construction for four years. The building is home to multiple Turkish diplomatic facilities in New York, including a mission and consulate, and also hosts Turkish cultural events. There are also a number of residences inside the property.
