The two bombs that went off near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday went off in a popular downtown shopping area that will be familiar to both locals and any tourist who has ever visited the city.

The bombs went off on Boylston Street near the intersections of Fairfield and Exeter streets, according to the New York Times.

A third incident happened at the JFK Library. It's unclear whether that event is linked to the bombs at the marathon.

Here's the big picture, and then we'll zoom in:
