I love the detail you captured in these photos. There have been quite a few DC threads here recently, but 1) you captured mostly the touristy parts without making it look tacky or slide-show and 2) you were the first to zoom in on the detail.

Compared to any other city in the U.S. (unless, arguably St. Augustine FL or Helen GA) Washington D.C. looks the most European. You can't deny the architectural influences of so many European styles when looking at D.C. as a whole.

Would have loved to see pics of Grand Central though. That is probably more impressive than anything in the whole city. Great set of pics.

And it doesn't matter what you think of what I think of govenment. I acknowledged that the pictures were nice. Now lighten up.

Great photos! I wish you had some more photos of Georgetown and that general area though! I find that part of the city far more interesting than the mall, although the mall is always nice Especially in these photos

I've never been to Rome but DC didn't strike me as that impressive. There are some nice monuments out there but the city feels like it lacks a soul. And the outer suburbs are incredible (in a negative way). We drove thru them and I was shocked to see such run down areas in the capital of the most powerful country on earth.

Great architecture and indeed a powerful city. I particularly like its street layout.

I could not agree more. D.C. is lovely! I would love to make it out to the U.S. Capital someday!
