An IED explodes outside the Times Square Army recruitment office

The bombing occurred just before 4am, damaging the windows of the recruitment center. Although the bomber was seen on security camera footage, it provided no usable information to their identity and no one has ever been charged in the bombing. A 1980s bicycle found dumped at a nearby construction site is believed to have been the same bicycle the bomber is seen riding to Times Square, but no fingerprints or evidence were retrieved from the bike. The FBI is still actively investigating the bombing and a reward of up to $115,000 is still offered for information leading to the bomber's capture.
