Second bomb found in New York City shortly after 29 hurt in Chelsea blast

The second bomb found in New York early Sunday was planted in a pressure cooker on 27nd Street, four blocks from the device that exploded in a dumpster in the Chelsea neighborhood that injured 29 people. It was found when NYPD and federal investigators expanded the search through Manhattan. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo refused to connect the incidents to terrorism at this stage but urged the public to be vigilant. 
Saturday night, a pipe bomb exploded on the Seaside Park boardwalk in New Jersey, just before a Marine Corps charity run which was cancelled. No one was hurt. Two more pipe bombs were found in the same trash can but did not explode.
