A bomb explodes while being constructed in Harlem
The explosion kills three of the bomb-makers and one person in the building and injures 20 others. The building at 1626 Lexington Ave at 102nd Street was heavily damaged, but still stands today. The powerful bomb was possibly being constructed to attack John D. Rockefeller's home in Tarrytown, NY.
