Authorities urged everyone to avoid the Douglass Parking Deck area while officials investigated.
Earlier today, a device exploded near a train station in Elizabeth, New Jersey. No one was hurt.
The discovery of the suspicious package came a day after an explosion in Manhattan injured 29 people, and an unexploded pressure-cooker device was found four blocks away in New York City.
