So there has been some discussion in Contribute about the large amount of smoke that seems to be floating over lower Manhattan. Just to be clear, as far as we can tell the fire is not in Manhattan, it's in Jersey. Probably a brush fire? More than that we haven't found out much (not our state...), but maybe it's related to this? Anybody know anything more?

In any event, we hope the tuna sandwiches are ok...

Here's another view, from Red Hook. We were out there and lots of people were wondering about the smoke:

UPDATE: yep, definitely sounds like a Jersey brushfire.
