Another Manhole Explosion in The Bronx, This Time in Belmont

Last week, three manhole explosions occurred on Davidson Avenue near W 183rd Street setting two cars on fire.

Now, last night around 12:45AM, a build-up of carbon monoxide due to a manhole explosion caused another explosion and ripped apart the stoop of a building at 4683 Park Avenue.

Luckily, no one was hurt as residents had been evacuated earlier due to the extreme build up of carbon monoxide in the cellar of the building.

From fires to manhole explosions and a broken down subway system, our city’s infrastructure seems to be collapsing before our eyes.

Every other day it’s something else. When will the city realize it needs to invest in our infrastructure?
