Are you stuck inside, maybe not even near a window (like me), on this gorgeous summer day? Then take a few minutes to run through this new batch of photos from up high
at the Courtyard by Marriott
at New Jersey and L, SE, showing views east across the Cappers and west across New Jersey Avenue (both down toward the ballpark
and up toward the Capitol), displayed alongside the 2006 "befores" from the same angles. If somehow the differences between "old" and "new" Near Southeast haven't quite been apparent to you before now, this batch of photos should finally take care of it--remember, it's a mere 27 months between the oldest and newest shots.
As a special added bonus, you can also see proof that the USDOT
's vaunted green roof is indeed green
