About the 'explosion' in Tompkins Square Park this morning

Just before 9 this morning, there was what sounded like an explosion coming from Tompkins Square Park.

The Citizen app described it as a "loud power loss," sorta like the Nets getting swept by the Celtics. 

EVG correspondent Steven was in the Park ... and reported that it was some kind of compressor backfire from a Park vehicle parked by the field office along the Ninth Street walkway...
All this prompted visits by the FDNY and NYPD...
Anyway, if you were in the vicinity and wondered what that was all about...

I was in the small dog run when it happened. There was a parks dept truck right there. Vast amounts of smoke came out of for several minutes. I didn't get any shots because we all ran out with our dogs. A very toxic smell!

I thought for sure the noise came from the BOTOX® Reimagine™ Public Art™ installation at Astor Place.
