Favorite DC monument/memorial?
Library of Congress
My favorite memorial is the DC War Memorial in West Potomac Park. It was built to commemorate those from the District who died in World War I and stands in a lovely secluded spot. For years it suffered neglect but it was recently restored to its true beauty. On a Mall that’s increasingly crowded, this is a place of contemplation and quiet.There also should be some sort of memorial to the late and lamented Market Inn, which stood at 200 and E Streets SW. Congressmen ate there. Layabouts listened to piano bar music and drank in a bar with walls covered in photos and paintings of burlesque beauties. It closed in 2008. That Washington is gone forever, alas.
Lincoln Memorial. I’m a cliche! But I love that it is a space you can enter.
Favorite DC pastime
Walking from my house in SW to The Yards — or over to Hains Point.
Going to watch my hometown Phillies play the Nationals.
Running into DC theatre friends as we flit from show to show, Maybe we’ll see you at ours!
I am only ever in DC for theater stuff. So desperate rewriting, I guess. Desperate rewriting.
Walking to the various museums and photobombing tourists
