NEW YORK (AP) — An explosion that leveled two buildings in northern Manhattan has suspended Metro-North commuter trains into Manhattan.
The blast on 116th Street and Park Avenue occurred very close to Metro-North tracks. Service on all lines to and from Grand Central Terminal has been suspended while employees try to clear debris from the tracks.
Metro-North says trains heading toward New York City are stopping in the Bronx, and riders can take subways into Manhattan. Riders can also take subways to the Bronx to get onto Metro-North trains heading away from the city.
The commuter railroad says the service plan will remain in effect until further notice.
