This is one of those places that you can see much better with the Microsoft Terra Server than with Google Maps:

The place in question is the Oklahoma City National Memorial, built to remember the victims, rescuers, and survivors of the terrorist bombing that destroyed the Alfred P Murrah Federal Building over ten years ago. In the Terra Server image, you can clearly make out the individual stone chairs on the lawn, one chair for each of the 168 fatalities (do not forget that many victims survived the blast).
