New York Times Posts Boston Marathon Interactive Feature

The New York Times has posted an excellent interactive feature about the Boston Marathon.

The paper interviewed 19 people who were near the finish line when the bomb went off for the graphic. As you scroll through the photos of the individuals, a circle pops up on a photo of the finish line, noting exactly where the person was when the first explosion happened.

Each person’s slot also features a stirring quote from their interview, such as “I said out loud, ‘this is how my life is going to end.’” You can click a button next to the person to hear their complete story.

The feature is riveting, and a fine example of the Times making the most out of the web.
