Four bronze spires now rise to the sky at 755 Boylston St. in memory of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing.
This is just the beginning of the installation process for the memorials that will mark the two places pressure-cooker bombs exploded on April 15, 2013, killing three people and injuring hundreds more.
The memorials, which will feature light pillars, metal, and stone, are expected to be completed by the end of the summer, according to The Boston Globe.

The Marathon Markers will be a testament to the spirit and resiliency of the people of Boston, and a way to honor those we have lost, and those who are still healing.
