And for those of you not in the city or watching cable news right now, an Airbus 320 has crashed into the Hudson River near 48th Street. US Airways Flight 1549 was flying from LaGuardia to Charlotte, North Carolina, and may have run into a flock of geese before going down. Thankfully, no one was hurt killed.
