Even while the cause remains unknown, a deadly blast that leveled two buildings served by a 127-year-old gas main has provided a jarring reminder of just how old and vulnerable much of the infrastructure is in New York and many other cities nationwide.

This is a tragedy. Best wishes to the injured and families of those killed.

But the gas explosion has seemed to have originated on private property and not from infrastructure on a public street.. How is that an infrastructure problem. Were precautions were taken with all utilities since this building was apparently under renovation.

The question should be at point does the utility service transition from a public or utility company problem to a private property owner. To me if there is a meter on it it's gas company property and should be their responsibility to maintain. But individual gas lines on private property should be the owners responsibility just like the owner would have to hire an electrician to fix a wall outlet. Once that utility LEAVES the utility company property then it should be the owners problem to fix. Some states actually favor the utility companies by making the owners own/ pay for what should be utility company property on public streets. Others don't.
