In August 2007, the second of the three houses was rebuilt, and my family and I moved into it.
Artist and fellow Irvingtonian Todd Bracik, who lives just a mile or so from the explosion took some photos of the Ritter Gas Explosion a couple days after it happened. He has some photos from the nursing home across the street, a blue house with Gambrel roof that was on the next block, with its windows blown out, neighbors two doors to the north that lost windows. It's a real mess.
To drive around the neighborhood now, you wouldn't even know something happened, except for the empty lot of the original explosion. And we have just learned the guy who owns the property -- a firefighter, of all things -- is going to build a new house there soon.
