Midtown has erupted into sirens. A plane has crashed into a high-rise. Appears to be my apartment block. Well, guess I’ll be heading home early today.
UPDATE: The building is at 72nd & York, at least 1000 feet from mine. The fire looks quite bad. At this time of day, the only people likely to be home in that building will be children and their nannies. CNN is reporting that fighter jets have been scrambled over NYC as a precautionary measure. My neighbors, Jeff of Cynically Optimistic, and RJ of Daily Blague, have already posted live pics.
UPDATE II: The plane was owned by New York Yankees pitcher Cory Lidle, he and his passenger were killed.
