So, rumor has it that some sort of earthquake hit NYC this afternoon? We kid, we kid; we totally felt it in our office and even spotted few glasses of water vibrating la Jurassic Park. (Thankfully, it seems that nobody in town was injured because of the quake.) In the few minutes that followed the tremors, we received a flood of feedback on our Twitter and Facebook pages from folks throughout the city and others who felt the quake in Philly, Long Island, Boston, New Hampshire and elsewhere. For a host of personal anecdotes from New Yorkers about today's earthquake, head to our favorites page on Twitter. For our money, this one from @Litoralis_NY takes the cake: "Overheard in my lower Manhattan (hedge fund) office while everyone was being evacuated from the 16th floor: 'Keep trading!'"
