By 7 a.m. Sunday, all the streets that were closed due to yesterday’s explosion in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City had reopened, with the exception of West 23rd, which was still closed between Fifth and Eighth Avenues, the New York Times reported.
The explosion halted traffic and disrupted mass transit in the area as police investigated the incident, PIX11 reported.
The news station reported that the 1, 2, E and F trains had to bypass 23rd Street in both directions. Crosstown traffic heading east and westbound was still closed from West 14th Street to West 32nd Street from Fifth to Eighth Avenue as of Sunday morning, PIX11 said.
