How I survived New York’s deadly piano store blastmain
Colin Patterson, who worked and lived at Absolute Piano, has been telling the Daily News how he got out alive when the store blew up. ‘I was watching TV,’ he said. ‘There was a massive explosion and before you know it the building was on top of me. I didn’t know what happened.’
The store has been owned and operated since 2005 by Kaoru Muramatsu, a graduate of Nippon University, who made it a hub for piano activity in that part of the city.
