    Tree was not lit yet when we were they-course it was late at night and very cold, so we did not wait.

    Due to the government shutdown, this is the best place from where to take a picture of the White House.

    A big swath of open land that often seems more a tedious connection between the White House & Washington Monument than any sort of vista-complementing parkland.. but a good pitch for games on occasion

    The original appropriation known as President’s Park is now divided into three distinct spaces: the White House Grounds, the Ellipse, and Lafayette Square
