my d.c.: rooftop
posted by soe 12:18 am

One day last year, I was out for a walk along Connecticut Avenue. This building, 2101 Connecticut Avenue, is a mile or so from my house. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve passed it in the six years I’ve lived in the area.

Developed by Harry Bralove (who also built D.C.’s Omni Shoreham Hotel) and Edward Ernst and designed by George T. Santmyers, it’s a large, fancy, old apartment building built in 1927. So the building’s been there a good, long time. I’d seen it. But I’d never seen it. Until that day…

…when I looked up.
