The Willard

I was so glad when they decided to save the Willard instead of demolishing it. This view is looking up 14th St. towards "F" St one block up. I worked for United Press International for several years in the National Press Building which is directly across from the Willard on the right hand side. The Willard was closed, at that time, and was re-opened several years later after I had moved from the area. There is a lot of history in that building and it would have been a shame to tear it down.

Love the dogs

Just hanging out on the corner, watching the world go by. It's what dogs do.
