New Yorkers this afternoon joined Bay State residents in a moment of silence as the city of Boston marked one week since the marathon bombings claimed three lives and injured more than 200 others.
Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick asked residents to observe a moment of silence at 2:50 p.m., the time the first of two bombs went off one week ago.
Bells rang across the city and state after the minute-long tribute for the victims.
The observance came just hours after U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder announced suspected bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev had been formally charged with conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction, a federal crime which carries a possible death sentence.
However, he will not be charged as an enemy combatant.
Under U.S. law, citizens cannot be tried in military tribunals.
Tsarnaev is also likely to face a state charge for the deadly shooting of MIT police officer Sean Collier.
The 19-year-old is said to be awake and responsive to questioning at a Boston hospital where he's been since his arrest Friday night.
While the teen cannot speak, published reports say he has been writing messages to investigators.
According to reports, police say he shot himself in the throat in an apparent suicide attempt.
Police say Dzhokhar and his brother Tamerlan -- who was killed in a firefight with police -- had a large cache of weapons and were probably planning more attacks.
Investigators are looking into whether they had any training or if someone else inspired them to attack.
Meanwhile, one of the bombing victims is being laid to rest today.
Family, friends and supporters lined the streets of Medford, Massachusetts to say goodbye to 29-year-old Krystle Campbell.
No cameras were allowed inside.
Campbell's family wants to keep the funeral service private.
A memorial service is being held tonight at Boston University for 23-year-old Lu Lingzi, a graduate student from China who was also killed in the bombings.
There is still no word yet on memorial or funeral arrangements for 8-year-old bombing victim Martin Richard.
His mother and sister were seriously wounded in the attack.
