Architecture around the City

Building is in the Navy Yard.

Odd Church

St. Thomas Episcopal Church
1772 Church Street, NW
Washington DC

This Church is odd looking because it was burned down in 1970 by an arsonist, and they made a public park where the church once stood but you can still see where the altar once stood.  This church was famous for the many presidents that came here to warship.

International Dining in DC

1025 First St.  SE
Washington DC

Just pure greatness, with the way they take pride in the taste of their food, you would have never guessed from this little out of the way restaurant at the bottom of a condo building in SE on the Navy Yard.  this was the first restaurant to open over here and I see it staying for a long, long time.  When you go, site at the bar or the long community table and have a Radcliffe wrap!  WOW so good with chicken and granny smith apples, and the sweet potato fries!!!  this place gets an A+ with me.  the staff is super nice, and the decor and TVs are awesome.  the beer selections of great, I had a dark brew (Irish something).

This is the RADCLIFFE WRAP. so yummy

ICON: Dave LaChapelle

Dave LaChepelle is another ICON, that I follow, his images are moving and surreal, they are humorous, unique and sexual with bright colors and all types of body images, nothing if frowned upon here!  You may have seen some of his stuff on MTV. 

He is known for his Photography, Fashion and advertising, he's worked with all the designers and about every famous person wants him to do their music videos!
