"I felt a loud explosion and I felt like a lightning bolt struck the building. It, like, shook the ground, Everybody ran out of the restaurant into the street. The whole city was in the street."
"I walk down the street every day. ... This is my main thoroughfare. I'm either in an Uber, a cab, or on foot on this street all the time. This is my neighborhood. This isn't a tourist attraction. It's just the middle of the city. It does frighten me."
