Manholes have been exploding more than usual in NYC lately. For those of you who have never lived in NYC, the street randomly explodes at pretty frequent intervals. Sometimes it’s a steam pipe, sometimes it’s electrical. Right now firefighters are putting out a Radio Shack that was a little too close to an exploding manhole/transformer situation. We have video of that, plus three other recent explosions.
After Radio Shack (note the calm disinterest of the people who pass by), we have a transformer explosion in Brooklyn. After that, an exploding manhole in Manhattan on 6th Street (between Avenues A and B). It’s surrounded by brave ConEd workers who we do not envy. The last one is on 29th Street. Enjoy.
