iStockphoto/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — Part of New York’s 2 World Financial Center was briefly evacuated Thursday after an inert novelty hand grenade was discovered in the mailroom, law enforcement officials said.

The World War II-era grenade was mounted on a plaque, with a “Pull in for Service” inscription. It was found in the mail room routine screening.

2 World Financial Center is located across the street from the World Trade Center site.
