Crazy explosions outside my office!

My office is right on 8th ave and 35th st in manhattan and something just went BOOOOM! Looking out the window you can see tons of flames coming out of a subway grate or something and loud, loud SNAP SNAP SNAP!!! like a munitions dump is on fire or something.

If this is my last post, it was nice knowing ya!

don't expect to see it on the news unless you live in NYC. I think it was a construction site gone awry. But it was dramatic. my coworker snapped some pics that I'll post. Now the firefighters are on the scene.

here are a couple of pix my coworker (and occasional Otter) snapped. It was pretty insane for a couple of minutes there but the situation has petered out. Proceed with your regularly scheduled lives.

Thanks for the update.

Maybe you could draw us a map? Include your office, the location of the explosion, the direction the fire truck(s) and other emergency vehicles came from, and where the poop sign was found.

I'm only a few blocks away (32nd & Broadway) and haven't heard any emergency vehicles or sirens .... guess it's a non-event.

A methadone clinic and a porn store right next to each other? NYC really is the greatest city in the world.

hmm, this may be a cleverly disguised request for a photoshop assignment. someone check up on him to see if he's had a history of past requests; he might start getting nitpicky about the size and location of the poop sign.

Around my office there's no dog poop, only bum and junkie poop. I didn't want the map to get too busy, however.

I can't compete with GoVegan's illustrations there right now but I think everyone else is talking about this thread.

Do you happen to know if one of those stores may carry one of those machines that people use to hold a bunch of birds so people can have sex with them? i'm asking for a friend.

The porno store doesn't have it but I think Staples does.
