4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

There isn't much to see. There is a multi-lingual placard identifying the place where the bomb exploded (of course, far in the air). The place is where the granite stored in the bomb to locate the hypocenter fell. It's chilling. Today, it's on the side of a normal-looking street. There's nothing else to indicate it was the center of the bomb.
