For whatever it is worth in 1955 the U.S. had a day when there was a mock Soviet nuclear attack on the U.S. The bomb to hit NYC was deemed to have a ground zero at 7th St and Kent in Williamsburg. The book I am reading on this stated that it was unclear why that location was selected as ground zero. Pres Ike moved to an undisclosed location for three days and many other steps were taken. Maybe one of the planners had an ex-wife or a mother-in-law at that location.
