Reports are rippling through Twitter (top photo via @NewYorkology and Nicole Breskin) about smoke and fire at 34th Street on the west side, near Madison Square Garden, where it seems a manhole blew up. Cops have blocked traffic and we have more pictures after the jump. Updates as they come!

Looks handled! Hopefully everyone is okay.
