Molotov Cocktail Thrown at NYC's Masonic Hall


The New York Post reports that an unidentified suspect threw a Molotov cocktail at the entrance of New York's landmark Masonic Hall on 23rd Street Wednesday night at about 11:45PM. 

According to the report, the glass incendiary device ignited and quickly burned out. Firefighters were called, but the flames had been extinguished by the time they arrived. There were no injuries and there is currently no word yet on any damage.

The suspect was seen on video surveillance cameras and was wearing a grey sweatshirt and green track pants with white stripes down the legs (click the photo above to enlarge). New York Crime Stoppers is seeking tips on this suspect at 800-577-8477.


The Masonic Hall is home to dozens of Masonic lodges and related organizations, and is the headquarters of the Grand Lodge of New York F&AM.

  1. I did not say it in the post, but bear in mind that yesterday was Yom Kippur. In the anti-Masonic conspiracy lover's world, Freemasonry and Judaism are interconnected. It's entirely in the realm of possibility that this would-be bomber linked the fraternity with the Jewish holiday when he planned his activities.
