A large glass display window at Zara, the clothing store at 1963 Broadway near 66th Street, shattered and exploded on Wednesday morning, shocking some passersby.
Diane Brush was nearby when it happened at about 8:20 a.m.
“She was behind the barricade but said when the window collapsed it sent glass way out onto the sidewalk and she got out of the way just in time,” her husband Charles wrote in an email to us. “The window apparently was broken earlier but stayed together, so a barrier was placed out on the sidewalk.”
No one outside appeared to be injured, she said.
A Zara manager said “the glass just exploded.” She was unavailable for further comment.
