I felt it in Newark, NJ, but it was such a rare occurrence it was over before my mind processed that it wasn't my imagination and might be serious.

I live in an apartment building that is close to 90 years old and my apartment shows signs of wear from the building settling as it is. I won't be surprised to find some cracks in the paint or some dust from the ceiling.

Felt it very slightly here in Southern NY.

Going back to DC in two days. Sounds like no serious damage near my campus though.

Felt it here in New Haven, CT. I work in a university that decided only SOME departments needed to be evacuated.
