Awesome find! I remember New York in the 90's was like the wild west when it came to fireworks, I can remember hearing pineapples going off at 3 am
leaving car alarms going off down the entire block. We used to get pineapples(pretty much the power of 4 m-80's) bottle rockets, jumping jacks, black
cats cherry bombs ... pretty much anything fun and really loud, from a candy shop a few blocks from my house in queens. If they were sold out we would
just take the train to canal street and have just as big of selection... however Mayor Giuliani put an end that pretty quickly when he came to office,
he kinda did for fireworks and 42nd st. what Ed Koch did for the subway system in the early 80's. since then they have enforced to no fireworks policy
pretty damn strict... things got even crazier when 9/11 took place. which is what strikes me as really odd to why they have no suspects or arrests....
or more details on the garbage can/box found (or remnants for that matter).
the NYPD's response to the whole thing just leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
