The U.S. Homeland Security Department said it was monitoring and investigating a small explosion that caused minor damage to a U.S. military recruiting center in New York's Times Square area on Thursday.

Asked if there was a link to terrorism in the incident, the department's spokeswoman Laura Keehner said "at this time we're still investigating."

I'm working in Jersey today. Forget trying to commute in this mess.

I wonder why we would find out about this kind of thing from the UK Guardian first? :dunno:

It happened overnight (3:45ish) and the overseas media staff was already in the office while our guys were sound asleep.

The subway system is closed and I go through Times Square to get to my office so I decided early not to make that commute.

Wondermous. Atleast I get out at 49th St. Hopefully, there won't be too many issues up there. Hopefully, it's JUST Times Square that closed and not surrounding stations.

Rockaway Mall! That's where we used to shop (we lived in Mt. Tabor).

Yes, I can easily imagine the madhouse in the Times Square area today. Just shutting down that part of the subway system creates severe havoc. Good luck up there, everyone who lives/works in that area.

I heard no announcements at all this morning. Looks like business as usual as far as the subways are concerned. Maybe it didn't affect the N,R,W line.

Yet another reason why I live in Brooklyn. The only thing that disrupts the Q line is construction... or tsunami like rain, but that's rare

There is no rain associated with Tsunamis. They are caused by underwater earthquakes and cannot be blamed on global warming even though that has been done.
