Standing on the Grassy Knoll, it's a bit surreal to stand in places so defined by a single moment in history. With a nearby monument and a museum in the former Texas School Book Depository providing more context, you can also still find conspiracy theorists at Dealey Plaza trying to enlighten the public on what really happened.
This is the view looking west on Dealey Plaza. The 'X' marking the spot where the president was hit is just behind the black car in this image. The motorcade was heading towards the overpass. Oswald fired from above (the top right). Straight ahead is the Grassy Knoll.
