Photos From East Harlem Building Explosion [Updated]

An explosion in East Harlem has left at least eight dead and more than 50 injured with many people missing. The Observer was on the scene and took some photos of the mayhem that ensued after the morning explosion on Park Avenue and 116th Street that leveled two buildings. The mayor called the explosion, a “tragedy of the worst kind,” at a press conference. A gas leak was reportedly the impetus for the explosion.
