The NYPD received a bomb threat targeting the Empire State Building on Sunday but have since deemed it bogus, police said.

At 11 a.m., cops received a 911 call saying a bomb would detonate at the Manhattan landmark at noon, according to the NYPD.

An ensuing police investigation found no explosives at the site, they said. The call is still under investigation.

The incident comes two days after an explosives-packed RV blaring a recording with a detonation countdown exploded in downtown Nashville.

The blast, which left at least three people injured, is being probed as a possible suicide attack.
