"7 Ave & 92 St."

7th ave and 92nd street, if it existed, would be inside Central Park.

Homeland Security has announced that there is no evidence of terrorism.

Stay safe, and thank you for the heads up. Correct me if I’m wrong, but is this not a majority Jewish area? And, is this the SAME borough that was vandalized on the anniversary of Kristallnacht?

Any word on the streets as far as who? I have to admit the poster warning from Al Qaeda, the fact that Israel has dealt with exploding buses for a LONG time now, Egypt shoots a missile into Israel today, the Muslim Brotherhood is LITERALLY IN the White House, and now this - on the *eve* of Passover? I’m not likely to believe any claims that this was NOT some sort of terrorist attack, frankly.

The bus ran over a mattress and the springs ruptured the gas tank.

Before they even left their offices. Or so one should presume.

Oh come on. That doesn't even pass the smell test. A bus running over a mattress and the springs ruptured the tank? What kind of idiots do they think we are...don't answer that because there must be plenty since so many voted for the marxist.

Springs from a mattress rupturing the gas tank. Just like a mosquito bite can take down an elephant.

Great initial info — thanks for doing the research Matthew!

Prayers for the folks in NY (just east of me here) that they are not in harm’s way.

At least there were witnesses, otherwise I don’t know if I’d likely believe this scenario - especially not after the last few days... I think I’ll go to bed now before my despair at what is happening to our world doesn’t get any more *supportive* evidence! ;)

If I was a terrorist, I’d blow it up during rush hour. Not after midnight.

My vote’s on the mattress.

No doubt, huh? I’m POSITIVE they tested that *bedding* already, and the gas tank! right? Move along... nothing to see here. Just a bombed out bus on Passover in Brooklyn - carry on, please!

Yeah, I’ll come back to think about this in the morning, but I’m pretty sure my original gut reaction is correct.

OP says Brooklyn.

Yes, I realized that after I posted the map. I work a few blocks from what would be 96th and 7th Ave in Manhattan (7th ave gets cutoff by Central Park at 59th Street, aka Central Park South). I just now got home from work (at 1AM). Also under meds from bad toothache and infection. Need a good sleep badly.

That seems like a pretty blanket statement.

That is a Manhattan map. New York City has five “boroughs.” Brooklyn and Manhattan are two of the five, the others being Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island. Looks like the accident took place in the Bensonhurst section of Brooklyn

Why? New York never sleeps. Is there a large Jewish community in that area?

Those must be some long springs to reach all the way up to the gas tank. What was the tank made of cloth?

I’d need to see a demonstration of this before I could believe it.

If this is probable, it should be repeatable.

I don’t think the Jewish community is filling up the buses at this hour.

Passover starts tomorrow I think. People should stay alert if there is terrorist chatter.

I was on the front seat of a bus that had to swerve to miss a dining room set on I-95. When you’re in an area that’s been settled by the third world, it’s not that uncommon.

If the springs are that strong, no wonder someone threw it out.

I hear yah... But then again... If you were going to make up a story to explain a bus explosion, would you make up ~this~ story? Sometime the sheer implausibility is evidence enough. :-)

I thought those buses had diesel engines. Diesel doesn’t flash like gasoline.

I didn't know that. So that's what hillary's comment was about - it's better for ALL if Israel works on diplomacy.

I wouldn’t make this story up, but if the government flunkee who is the highest one on duty at this particular moment might not be very bright. The diesel post following yours makes a very good point.
