Whilst happily ensconced amongst the wonders of two separate boat tours of NY Harbor on Tuesday, Our Lady of the Pentacle texted me with the news of great tumult nearby Newtown Pentacle HQ in my beloved Astoria. Breathless (she is a writer and can convey great levels of subtext, even within a 180 character message), Our Lady described the presence of vast numbers of NYPD specialist squads- Hazmat, Tactical, and Aviation were emphasized- at work on 28th Avenue near 45 street.

Upon returning home, she described message board chatter spinning wild rumors, and we instituted a Newtown Pentacle style inquiry into the matter. Basically, we googled it and found this:

Here’s the scoop, at least according to WABC TV news:

ASTORIA, Queens (WABC) — A hazardous material teams investigated a possible radiation scare at a house in Queens.

A box with a radiation symbol was found inside an apartment on 45th Street in Astoria Tuesday.
