Taken from the corner of Broadway and Fayette, you can see how small the rubble pile looks for what was a gigantic building. This closer-up shot of the debris reveals how well it was contained within its own footprint.

Located a block away on Orleans street is the Broadway Public Library. It was draped in heavy black geotextile fabric to protect it from any flying debris. Even more sensitive was the John Hopkins Hospital behind the library. Many precautions were taken to protect the hospital buildings and their occupants. Smaller, but no less important, are the townhomes where hundreds live across Fayette Street. They too were draped in geotextile fabric, and appear to have survived the blast with no damage.
