You're right. Washington, D.C. is really awesome.
I thought it's a boring city but not at all.
But I guess it depends on what you look for in a city.

DC is really beautiful. It's one of the best cities in the US and in the world. Obviously, it's not as good as Paris or London, but it's as good as great cities like Madrid and Vienna.

Haven't been to London, Paris, Madrid and Vienna yet.
I can probably make a comparison next year.

I don't see the point of that type of rapid generalization of cities. All cities are different and have different advantages and disadvantages.

The cities that I mentioned are all capitals, like DC. However, unlike DC, London and Paris are also the main city in their respective nations. In many countries, however, the political capital is not the main city (e.g., US, Canada, Brazil, Australia, etc.). Thus, while DC is not on par with London and Paris, it's still one of the world's best cities in my view.

It is hard to believe that many people were actually angry at how the Jefferson Memorial turned out. They felt the styling antiquated while I see it as timeless beauty.

I agree. There's eternally beautiful architecture which, with time, always outshines every modern attempt at creating something exceptional. Today, everything that was thought of as progressively modern, in the 1960's and 1970's is considered to be ugly. The same will probably be true in a few decades about the minimalist architecture we adore today.
