What the Marble Cemetery looks like when the bomb squad isn't around

The Marble Cemetery on Second Street between First Avenue and Second Avenue remains a huge crime scene now ... We're getting word that more police have arrived... Earlier today, a worker found some explosive material ... Per WNBC: The explosives are the kind used at construction sites; no ties to terror or other threats...

Anyway, during quieter times... here's what the cemetery looks like...

there's a woman who sells used clothing, wares, hodgepodge, in front of marble cemetery on weekends. wonder if she'd still be allow to do so, after this.

From Ray Kelly's news conference, it sounds to me like these were military grade explosives that did not have a detonator attached. That means they were indeed quite dangerous, but it wasn't an active bomb.

I guess the investigation is on.
