3 Years Since East Harlem Gas Explosion

March 12, 2017

Today marks three years since the East Harlem explosion that destroyed two buildings and killed eight people.

The blast on Park Avenue near 116th Street happened after a gas line ruptured.

It injured dozens of others and left many displaced and homeless.

It also took a toll on several nearby businesses.

A community health group blamed the explosion for a spike in asthma cases in the area as well.

Con Edison reached a $153 million dollar settlement with the state over the explosion last month after it was determined the utility company violated safety regulations leading up to the explosion.
