What time was it? I sleep like a log so I would probably miss out. They always seem to happen when I'm asleep. The only one I ever witnessed was... like 5-6 years ago. I happened to be under my desk at work (i was cleaning!) and someone said an earthquake just happened and everyone in my office felt it except me. I was kinda mad. Also, do you need good equilibrium to feel minor earthquakes? Not that I ever want to feel a big one.., but i've always wanted to at least feel a small little one.

I missed this one entirely, just like the one about four or five years ago. Didn't feel a thing. That last time I was in a skyscraper in the financial district. This time I was uptown.


But both times I was in pre-war buildings. I wonder if that made a difference. Maybe old-school construction is more earthquake resistant? IDK.

I was in a lower manhattan very VERY old building at the time and didn't feel it, but like I said everyone in my office DID. Some just heard stuff. I thought they were pulling my leg because I was under my desk cleaning like a maniac and it just happened to happen at that time. ha.

I wonder how many of those new crappy affordable buildings that have gone up in the last few years now have serious damage yet to be determined from this minor quake!? LOOK UP! THAT'S YOUR NEIGHBOR'S BUTTHOLE!
