Dealey Plaza has changed a bit since 1963. The famous Stemmons Freeway sign is gone, and the Hertz car rental sign is gone from atop the Depository.
Some of the train tracks over the Triple Underpass have been replaced with electrified commuter rail tracks, and the parking lot behind the Stockade Fence is now paved.
A plaque now defaces the grass between the Pergola and Elm Street. Otherwise, it’s pretty much the same place, The Place.
