Boston's Defiant Spirit on Display at Fenway Park: 'We Are Boston Strong'


The Arcolanos' home was also searched and Nicholas Arcolano said they had "convinced" themselves because their home was searched "he must not be here, he must be somewhere else," only to have the police descend on his neighborhood and the younger Tsarnaev be caught just feet from their home.

"It's a little scary, because we have a playhouse back there. He could have decided that it was a better place to hang out," Nicholas Arcolano said.

His wife confessed, "I didn't tell you. ... When it was dawn I crawled downstairs and I looked in the playhouse through the window with a flashlight."

After Tsarnaev was taken into custody, ambulances streamed out of their neighborhood and a grateful community cheered police and law enforcement, taking to the streets to applaud and cheer.

The people of Boston continued their celebrating into the night, singing and thanking police all over, from Watertown to downtown, relieved that their city under siege is now back in business.
