This graphic details three zones should an explosive event occur at the proposed Spectra natural gas pipeline currently under consideration for construction in lower Manhattan: a 500-foot radius, where everything would be incinerated if the pipeline were operating at the lower end of the pressure scale, around 800 pounds per square inch (psi); an 800-foot radius, where massive damage would occur if the pipeline were to be operating at the maximum 1,450 psi; and a 1,000 foot radius, in which enormous destruction would occur at any pressure.

A few weeks ago, a group of protesters affiliated with Occupy the Pipeline managed to gain access to the construction site at Gansevoort and the Hudson Parkway, where a massive new natural gas pipeline that will run from New Jersey into lower Manhattan is being laid, and blocked construction of the project for more than
