  • This is a hidden gem. The nondescript exterior belies the gorgeous interior. Its stunning. It's always empty but is a private building. You only need to provide your ID to the security guard and you can walk around. Takes maybe 20 minutes to see it all but it's a great spot right by the Lincoln memorial to get out of the heat or cold.
  • This cafeteria is so good. Better quality than the one in my building, but not as much selection. I had fried chicken which I will go back for. Soda cups are bigger than the cafeteria at the Red Cross building
