The heart of Copley Square remains shut down. Boston Common resembles a military encampment. Cafe tables along Newbury Street remain uncleaned as police comb the area for possible evidence.
Kirty Lee took the Green Line into work today:
Held it together until I rode through Copley station pitch black. Haunting.
A.P. Blake reports:
Security at Tip ONeil Fed Bldg includes guys with M16s looking through binoculars.
Everyone going into Harvard station was searched.
Bostonians rushed to help: Mass. General reports more people are walking in to donate blood than it can accomodate; the hospital is asking people who want to give to set up an appointment, at 617-726-8177.
Some people carried on as if nothing had happened. Kit Kat reports:
Sob Story Guy on the Needham Heights train. Not the best day to bed for money dude!
I just got off at South Station. So many police, National Guard. Intimidating & sombering.
Dan Podheiser reports:
Armored military/guards all over Cleveland Circle this morning. They were all smiling and cheerful, though.
Davina Chojnowski reports:
On the Red Line from Ashmont to Harvard Sq., no extra police presence that I could see but everyone looks spooked and sad.
