The Wall Street Bombing Happened Here

Manhattan: Financial District/
Wall Street just east of Broad Street.

Thirty people were killed by an explosion of a TNT- and schrapnel-filled horse-drawn wagon placed on this site. The perpetrators (Bolsheviks and anarchists have been blamed) were never caught. The old JP Morgan building still bears scars from the explosion on its Wall Street side.
