Washington DC certainly has those monumental buildings wich seem to have gone missing in other US cities!

After all it's the capital of a mighty country. And I suppose there are monumental buildings in other cities too, but they're less visible in between the giant skyscrapers.

Oh, i had completely missed this thread until now. I'm particularly interested in Washington which seems to be one of the few American cities with a centre that looks really nice, rather than just impressive. If that makes any sense.

The few American cities that I visited had a rather nice city center, but I don't know what the hundreds of others looks like.

I've not been to Washington DC, but I get the impression that the reason that the city centre is "nice" is because it has been designed and laid out in a very classical manner: proportion; space; grandeur.
