world pictures The Eastern United States: Washington, D.C.'s Height Limit

One of the most dramatic neighborhood changes is taking place near the MCI Center, in what's become known as Penn Quarter.  Here's the Monaco Hotel, occupying what began in 1839 as the Tariff Building.  The building was a post office for many years; it's also housed the General Land Office and General Pershing.  Decommissioned in 1996, it still belongs to the General Services Administration, though the Kimpton Hotel group has leased it. This northern side was designed by Thomas Ustick Walter, designer of the U.S. capitol dome.
