Explosions and fires are not fun... except in the movies. :)

I used to hang out in that east 14 Street area, I know there are a lot of food and retail businesses. In the last 30 years, the real estate around there has just gone through the roof. I hope some of those businesses can stay in business. One of my cheap eats favorites (haven't been there in two years) is Big Arc Chicken on First Avenue. I hope they will survive. Many other places around there, I can't think of what else is there. And the new restaurants: it takes a good two years from what I hear for a NYC restaurant to be able to really be profitable.

In general though a huge amount of retail business in that area. I recall that all of them had to close after 9/11. There are a huge amount of non-retail (non-food) related businesses. Hope all will be able to recuperate.
