I just heard an uncorroborated report from an acquaintance of mine that something big is happening in Times Square currently?

Any details?

edit: spelling

4. Well, the local public radio isn't saying anything on it
and cnn.com has nothing.

We had a building edxplosion in early 2002 down by NYU - just a chemical lab blowing up. Well, not "just", but within the realm of day to day life, the kind of major catastrophe that happens every now and again.

6. Fox News at 10 will have something...
apparently.

Methinks this is not as big of a deal as was mentioned. Perhaps a drill scenario in preparaion for the RNC?

7. Fireworks Cause Times Square Subway Explosion
POSTED: 10:08 pm EDT July 19, 2004

NEW YORK -- An explosion forced the evacuation of one of the city's busiest subway stations Monday.

Detectives said the explosion was caused by a bag full of fireworks.

The blast injured a police officer and caused gridlock in Times Square. Under ground, train service was disrupted. Meanwhile, traffic above ground was at a near standstill.
