CLEVELAND -- At noon Tuesday, Cleveland Police finally pulled away the barricades, giving people on foot and driving by their first chance at a place police describe as a prison for Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight.
Seymour Avenue is Cleveland's newest destination, for all the wrong reasons.
"I just came to see it with my own eyes, but next time I come, I'll probably bring my cellphone, take a picture," said Stan Miller, who lives about 10 miles away.
The home at 2207 where Ariel Castro allegedly held his victims for the last decade, is getting a lot of traffic.
"It's going to be like they got a movie or something over there. There's going to last all this week. Watch. A lot of people are going to come from other states to take a picture of the house," said Arivar Santiago.
A tall fence and on-duty officer keep the curious and the mischievous out, and any evidence that the court might later need in.
"It was hard to believe it but they happened. Now it's right in front our eyes you know," said Jose, who knew the Castro family.
New cell phone video obtained by NBC's Today Show shows Ariel Castro, playing his bass guitar in the kitchen, the first blurry images inside of the house of horrors.
Neighbors outside say they're tired of the circus and still dealing with the emotions that started last Monday.
Aurora Marti first saw Amanda Berry waving for help, and said she was yelling desperately as she escaped from the home. Now she has her own questions for a neighbor she trusted.
"She would ask him, why you are so bad?" her daughter Jovita Marti translated.
Castro is in jail, awaiting a grand jury, as authorities keep working to process hundreds of items of evidence they took from this home.
It's hard to say exactly how long that could take because we know prosecutors are working through a decade-long crime.
Ian Friedman, an Ohio legal analyst, says an indictment itself could take one to two months.
On average, it could be six to nine months before trial.
But with a case of this magnitude, there could be dozens of complex legal issues, including possible mental health issues raised by Castro's defense.
