Sixteenth Street NW: Washington, DC's Avenue of Ambitions (Hardcover)
DeFerrari and Sefton have created a highly illustrated architectural "biography" of one of DC's most important boulevards. From the front door of the White House, this north-south artery runs through the middle of the DC and extends just past its border with Maryland, making it as central to the cityscape as it is to DC's history and culture.
John DeFerrari is a native Washingtonian with a lifelong passion for local history, which he writes about on his blog, Streets of Washington. He is the author of Capital Streetcars: Early Mass Transit in Washington, DC; Historic Restaurants of Washington, DC: Capital Eats; and Lost Washington, DC.Douglas Peter Sefton is an architectural historian, creator of the preservation website Victorian Secrets of Washington, DC, and a member of the board of trustees of the DC Preservation League.
