According to a piece on The New York Times site there was a possible car bomb at New York Times.
“It appears to be a car bomb left in a Pathfinder between Seventh and Eighth,” said Deputy Commissioner Paul J. Browne, the Police Department’s chief spokesman.
The device, he said, contained “explosive elements” that included “propane tanks, some kind of powder, gasoline and a timing device.”
“This is very much an active investigation,” he said.
While the final investigation isn’t done yet, either way this isn’t good. I can’t think of any reasonable explanation for a car with wrong plates, explosives and the like to be in Times Square. So I guess the question I am waiting to see answered is how we all will respond.
