Explosion in NYC Looks Like an IED



We will update as new information comes in

Update: 4:30 a.m.EST: a  second deice – a pressure cooker with wires coming out from it has been found four blocks away. Mayor de Blasio gave the usual response, “Tonight, New York City experienced a very bad incident. We have no credible and specific threat at the moment.”

What does that mean? No credible and specific threat at the moment? That’s meaningless and its somehow meant to calm. Then he said there were no terrorist connections because of course he would know that already and it’s so logical to assume that. [sarcasm] He also said it was not related to the NJ pipe bomb incident. Since no one has been arrested in the pipe bomb incident or in the NYC incident, he can’t possibly know that.


A surveillance camera caught the moment the blast went off.

Keep those unvetted foreigners from terror nations coming and do keep the borders open.

Hillary had nothing to say and looked terrible. A reporter asked her how she felt about Donald Trump calling it a bomb, a gift question. [Before Trump made his comments, CNN had reported it was an IED. Hillary also called it a bomb]

Original Story: Multiple people were injured at the first location of an outdoor, deliberate explosion in Chelsea Saturday night at 23rd street and 6th Avenue about 8 or 8:30 this evening. After the explosion, people were frantic and ran down 7th Avenue. A woman described it as an extremely loud boom “like you would hear in Iraq”. The “sound didn’t stop” and “the buildings shook with glass breaking” all around. She had ringing in her ears.

It was “not a normal explosion of any kind” that she ever heard.

A dumpster was blown up but it’s not known for certain if a device was in it.

It was not immediately clear how many people were injured or the severity of their injuries. Preliminary reports indicate at least 29 injuries, many or all were minor.

The FDNY is on the scene with the NYPD Counterterrorism Unit.

The explosion comes after a pipe bomb exploded in Seaside Park, New Jersey near the Semper Five 5K Charity Run Route earlier today. That device was placed in a garbage can and was meant to go off at the start of the kids race.

I have a good idea, let’s admit a 100,000 new immigrants, many from terror nations who can’t be vetted, 10,000 from Syria. Let’s keep our borders open and let anyone come in and call them refugees. Oh, wait, the president already thought of that.
