Hours later, in the Chelsea section of Manhattan at 23rd Street, another pressure-cooker bomb blew up inside of a Dumpster, blowing out windows of nearby buildings and projecting shrapnel hundreds of yards away.
Rahimi, a naturalized USA citizen who was born in Afghanistan, was arrested after a gunfight with New Jersey police, who found he was carrying a journal with praise for Islamic terrorists and promises of violence.
Rahimi's father Mohammad, a naturalized USA citizen, claimed he tried to warn the Federal Bureau of Investigation his son was at risk of radicalization two years before his terror attacks.
Rahimi had also exploded a device in Seaside Park, New Jersey, the day before the Chelsea bombing, and six pipe bombs he'd built were found in Elizabeth, New Jersey the day after.
"You sound like most people and yet your actions are totally at odds with your voice", Berman said.
"You have no remorse for what you did", she said.
Jurors took less than four hours to convict Rahimi on eight counts, including using a weapon of mass destruction and bombing a public place, following a two-week trial.

Pennsylvania reports 26 flu deaths last week
So far this season there have been 115 lab-confirmed cases of the flu in the area compared to 178 for all of previous year . So far, there has only been one pediatric death in Hillsborough County caused by the flu.
After speaking on the record for the first time, the Chelsea Bomber received two life sentences, plus 30 years, all to be served consecutively, for the September 2016 bombing he carried out. He said consecutive life sentences would not "show the world justice".
In the trial, Ahmad Rahimi criticized the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which said that the father had not sufficiently informed them of Rahimi's interest in terrorist organizations.
U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman in Manhattan said it was hard to reconcile the "reasonable enough" man he saw in court with the terrorist who tried to kill as many people as he could when he left his home early the morning of September 17, 2016, with two pressure-cooker explosives and a bag full of smaller bombs.
Rahimi "has been attempting to radicalize fellow inmates in the Metropolitan Correction Center by, among other things, distributing propaganda and publications issued by terrorist organizations", according to a letter from then-Acting US Attorney Joon H. Kim to Judge Berman.
She described Rahimi's efforts to radicalize fellow prisoners at the federal jail in NY where he has been imprisoned since his arrest.
Rahimi even laughed during the conversation, prosecutors claimed.
"Rahimi placed two ticking bombs in a crowded Manhattan neighborhood on a warm Saturday night", O'Neill said. It was the most cowardly of all crimes.
