Probably a gas explosion. Who would terrorize Harlem?

Prayers for all involved.

Witnesses talk about and video shows large amounts of small debris all over the rail tracks, video showing firefighters pouring water onto the remains of a building between two other buildings.

Center building looks completely collapsed...

With Blasio running the show, there could be footage of jihadists placing bombs and it will still be ruled a gas leak.

Who would terrorize Harlem?

Spike Lee would probably attribute it to 'gentrification.'

Could also be someone building a bomb I guess. One of those workplace accidents where it detonates ahead of its time. My guess is gas.
