Boston Marathon Bombing Manhunt in My Backyard! [Photos]


Last week was a tragic week. And Friday was an exciting day, in that it's not every day that the entire city gets shut down and there's a massive manhunt going on in your own backyard!

On Friday morning the FBI found out that the bombers lived on Norfolk street in Cambridge, which is just 3 blocks from my place, so I walked outside and snapped a few pictures. Here's what it looked like:

Boston Marathon Bombers

These bad-ass FBI agents were planning a "controlled explosion."  I counted over 50 agents.

News Networks Covering The Marathon Bombing Story

There were about 20 news trucks parked outside, pretty much every news network!

Cambridge Police and the FBI asked residents to evacuate and closed off the street.

Boston Marathon Finish Line on Boylston Street

I usually watch the runners at the finish line on Boylston Street but this year I was stuck at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center recovering from the H1N1 virus and other complications. Here's a photo I snapped from last year.

Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center

Here's the view from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. Dozens of news trucks and reporters camped out at the front entrance. Around a dozen bombing victims were treated here, and both bombing suspects were sent here.

And here's CNN reporting from Copley Square, just 3 blocks from the WordStream offices on 177 Huntington St.

And that's me on TV! Wearing the red jacket behind CNN's Don Lemon!

That bombing was very unfortunate. Someone must take responsibility of the blood that was shed that day...i still feel disgusted at the sad events of that day. Thanks for sharing

May be you can tell me the name of the hotel? This would be great.

I found your blog page on the Boston tragedy while researching a book for high school students on the FBI. Can we get permission from you to use some of the images in or on the book? Of course, we'd give you credit in the book and I'd send you copies. It's for a book on FBI Agents for a series called On a Mission, aimed at students in high school libraries. Drop me and line and let me know if you have any questions. Many thanks...
