Congo Chancery

February 20, 2011

 

During a walk through Rock Creek Park and down 16th Street on Saturday, Rachel and I were struck by the disrepair of this otherwise beautiful residential structure at the intersection of 16th Street and Colorado Avenue, NW, which the sign in front intriguingly identifies as the Republic of the Congo Chancery. Who knows why this place hasn’t been kept up, but it’s hard not to find some symbolism.
