Airborne Toxic Event: The Cleanup

So I work about a block and a half away from the "failure of [New York City's] infrastructure", which caused this.
The day after my office was within the "frozen zone" that shut everything down, however, 2 days later they opened up some of the nearby streets that allowed a flood of professionals in fancy clothes to weave through the police tape and barricades.
A few pictures:
