Out of the Blue

Small explosion hits New York's Times Square is the news that met me when I hit the news desk this morning. The video they were showing on TV at the time offered a sight I have never seen in a lifetime living in the New York City area: the entirety of Times Square closed off to traffic, with not a single car in sight on Seventh Avenue or Broadway, normally one of the busiest intersections in the entire world. What a strange scene! Anyway, thankfully no one was hurt.
