It is suggested that if you want to see the implosion, you should be at Bicentennial Park no later than 7:30am, as that's probably when the streets are going to get closed off... Biscayne Blvd, NE 2nd Avenue, all the major ones...

Can anyone guesstimate about how many people were there to watch the implosion? I unfortunately couldn't make it (Partied too Hard) but i'm always curious about such things...

I would say there were about 20-30 people where I was, at Bicentennial Park. Seems a good chunk of them were mostly the developer, demolition company, media, a few city and county employees, their families, etc. It was a very low-key event. The developer wanted it that way.

It was kept low key for religious reasons. The developer is Jewish, and Sunday is solemnly observed as the day the house of Israel fell.

Thanks for the compliment, TJ...
