Another picture of the sniper's den.


 There are people attempting to sell their conspiracy newspapers to the tourists.  I wasn't going to buy one, however the guy was so helpful and such a good resource in pointing out everything worthwhile seeing here, that I felt obliged to buy his $5 newspaper.


The pond at Dealey Plaza


Another view of the 6th floor sniper's den window from across the street.


Looking at the Zupruter concrete pedestal location from across the street from the School Book Depository.  Note the people standing at the location where Kennedy was struck with the fatal shot.

I took this picture from the Dealey Plaza monument area looking at the crime scene which gives a good view of the fatal shot location and the Zupruter concrete pedestal.  Also the picketed fence under trees in the grassy knoll where the fatal shot came from.  Audio tapes of the open police radio microphone indicate it was possible to fire shot all those shots, but not enough time between the shot that was his familiar audio shot signatures when compared to fatal one that had different audio characteristics.


Another good perspective view of this area.  As you can see the tourist gather at this location.


The is the statue of the plaza named after George Bannerman Dealey (18591946) was a Dallas, Texas, businessman and  the long-time publisher of the The Dallas Morning News.


  One more picture of Geroge Dealey's statue.


  I still have to get that overhead view of Dealey Plaza from Reunion Tower, so I walked back to Union Station, the location where the Amtrak Texas Eagle brought me into town.  


From on top of Reunion Tower, looking down at Dealey Plaza through the cloudy Plexiglass.


 Another view of Dealey Plaza.


The tallest building you see, (72-story 921 feet high) is the" Bank of America Plaza Skyscraper", located at 901 Main Street.  It is made from silver reflective glass.  It was completed in 1985 and is the most recognizable landmark in the downtown skyline.  At night, it is lit up with emerald green argon tubing which outlines the building.
