Explosion

Apparently there was a big explosion just a few blocks up the street (on 46th – I’m on 42nd) at News Corp.. Unfortunately, Fox News continues to broadcast without interruption. I didn’t hear anything butI looked out the window to see a giant cloud of black smoke rising. Turns out that was from just another one of the highly polluting furnaces in the city.

  1. OK, I got all caught up. You guys have been busy. For the record, it’s 80 degrees every day here. I miss NY, but this weather is hard to beat.

    Glad you found/liked Joe’s Shanghai. There’s one in Midtown, but it isn’t as good.

    Uh oh, Kaia just woke up. Gotta run. More later.
