An explosion rocked Chelsea Saturday night blowing out windows and injuring at least 29 people.
Mayor de Blasio said the bombing was an “intentional act.”
City police discovered another device nearby in a garbage can and took it to the police gun range for testing.
The second device was constructed from a pressure cooker with wires and a cell phone attached.
Donald Trump almost immediately announced that “a bomb went off” and that “we’d better get tough.”
Officials say that they have no specific or credible information that would indicate international terrorism. Law enforcement has also not yet tied the two NYC devices and the pipe bomb that exploded near a Marine Corps race in New Jersey to each other.
Governor Cuomo told New Yorkers to “feel safe” because “everything that can be done is being done.” Additional law enforcement is being placed at subway stations and the airport out of an abundance of caution.
