NEW YORK, NY (WSHM/AP) -

The Statue of Liberty is being evacuated, and New York City police say they're responding to a report of a suspicious package.

The New York Police Department said Friday it had harbor units at the scene, along with the National Park Service.

Visitors are posting photos online showing hundreds of people being herded toward a ferry landing.

The Park Service has yet to comment.
