While this amateur Facebook video showed the chaos and confusion on the ground after this morning’s explosion in East Harlem, the above photos, published by the MTA, capture the immediate relief effort. Firefighters spray down the burning buildings from atop cherry pickers, rail workers clear Metro-North tracks of debris, and the smoke billows on. See them in the gallery.
