Replaced by a Courthouse

The courthouse happens to be the US Supreme Court Building.

Sk8rz indeed

I wonder if those boys have been racing that streetcar.

Cafe!

What a great idea to put a cafe in a large apartment building. I don't think that's done much anymore -- at least not here in the Midwest.

Why "Congressional"?

Was it built to house member of Congress (and maybe their families)? Or is Congress looking for a bit of rental income on the side? Or just a name?

[The building was across the street from the Capitol, hence the name. - Dave]

Massive

Looks to be one really huge roof garden; could hold every tenant and a close friend! Hope it's still there!
