Suspicious White Van in Times Square

So I'm watching the news and a breaking story comes on about a white van that has been parked on 47th and Broadway -- for two whole days. I mean, I think people need to chill out. There are robotic machines going up to the van to check it out and all the surrounding streets have been closed.

The thing is, there is no reason this van is suspicious except for the fact that it's been parked there for two days. I don't get it. There are plenty of streets all over New York City, where I'm sure cars have been parked for even MORE than two days...why this van?

Are there not enough murders/robberies/drug dealings going on? Do these cops have nothing better to do? I'm really just annoyed with this "breaking news" story.
