Thousands of spectators, athletes and officials are pouring out of Olympic Stadium and onto the plaza.
They have spent casings from the spectacular fireworks display crunching under their feet and "Hey Jude" humming on their lips.
Everyone will sleep well after a night they'll never forget.
The Orbit observation deck still glows red. This is just the beginning, after all.
