MANHATTAN — Officials warned of rush hour delays in the wake of the shooting at the Empire State Building, where police closed streets to traffic while they investigated the violence.
On 33rd street, the block between Fifth and Sixth avenues was closed, and the street was closed between Madison and Fifth Avenue. At 3 p.m. traffic was running normally on 34th Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues, and Fifth Avenue was open to traffic.
Any buses that use Fifth Avenue could be delayed, said MTA spokesman Charles Seaton.
No subways or commuter rails were affected by the delays, said Seaton.
Commuters can use the bus-tracking service BusTime to track the exact location of their bus.
