Assessment:

Having two bombings in NJ in such short period is not normal and worth trying to link to the incident. Comparing to Seaside bombing, the position of the Elizabeth bombing this time set place in a much more denser population area, this could imply that this was a step up of the bomber in Seaside Park, or this is totally an other bomber trying to impose the previous one. Since the last bombing is a bomb with “meaning” (against US marine), this Elizabeth bombing seems a bit plain as this looks like an ordinary terror attack.
