It may look like a scene out of downtown Beirut, but it’s actually lower Manhattan.
Shortly after dropping off a vendor and his junk goods on Canal Street, this van burst into flames and completely exploded yesterday as it rolled past Foley Square.
Robert Singleton’s creaky 11-year-old vehicle burned to a crisp, sending massive plumes of black smoke into the air near the courthouses and wreaking traffic havoc throughout the afternoon.
Everyone knows that cars in Beirut spontaneously combust and blow-up on a regular basis. No one comes close in competing with our exploding vehicles.
