Bombings Not So Rare in NYC Over Last 100 Years

Boston Marathon Bombing 2013

Yesterday’s attack in Boston has left me sad and confused; I keep longing for a suspect to be caught, so I can hear about a motive, as though if I hear some lunatic’s justification for mass violence it’ll make sense? So I decided instead to distract myself with investigations into local history. Two small bombs exploded in Boston yesterday, but did you know that small bombs have been exploding in New York City for more than 100 years?

  • How about the bomb that exploded at Queen’s first World’s Fair in the 1930s? That one killed a couple of people, including cops. In those days, the bomb squad was so new that it also was in charge of forgeries too.
