I walk out of “School of Rock: the musical,” my first broadway play. My stepmom turns to me and says, “There was a bombing in New York.”
On Sept. 17, there was an explosion on the corner of 6 Ave. and 23 St. in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood. Less than eight hours ago, I was in that exact location.
Due to the explosion, at least 29 people are injured, one of which may be critical. The NYPD Counterterrorism Unit confirmed the explosion occurred within a trashcan but are still looking for other potential devices. The FBI and Homeland Security responded to the scene and continue to search the area.
That morning, I walked through Chelsea Market and across the High Line. It never crossed my mind that this would happen on my first trip to New York.
