Breaking news: explosion in New York

News just in… there’s been an explosion  on the east side of  midtown Manhattan, near where 42nd and 43rd Streets (reports seem to vary) meet Lexington Ave.   By my estimations, this must be quite close to the Chrysler Building.  Early reports are saying it’s not suspicious, but that a transformer has exploded. Let’s hope it isn’t anything more sinister than that.

    I was like a block away in the office. At first I thought it was thunder, but it just kept going and it was very very loud. Very scary, the NYPD says it was not terrorism. They say it was a steam explosion. Smoke and steam went up over the 45th floor. There was no black smoke like a fire though. People were running down Lexington. It was pretty scary, I was positive while in the area that it was terrorism.

    It happened right around the corner from one of the biggest creators of traffic congestion in NYC.

    Will Mayor Bloomberg do anything about Park Ave. being blocked off at 42nd street?

    I think Mayor Nanny Bloomie is a very arrogant man. I also highly doubt he rides the subway that much. He’s the mayor, I want someone driving him around so he can work and make calls and stuff. New Yorkers shouldn’t want him wasting all that time on the subway.

    We all have to wonder what Bloomberg is really thinking of with this congestion pricing tax scheme. Maybe he mostly just wants a new tax. Just wrap it up in ‘concern for the environment’, and then people can just demonize those who oppose it.

    If he cares so much about traffic jams, congestion and air pollution, why does he let Park Avenue be blocked off? Why doesn’t he do anything about that?

    It’s true, Pershing Square Restaurant blocks Park Avenue going South at 42nd St. for about 12 hours a day/5 months of the year! This Causes Massive Congestion and Air Pollution!

    But apparently it does not bother NYC’s Nanny-in-Chief Mike “Congestion Pricing Tax” Bloomberg?

    It certainly supports his claim that the city is hugely congested.
