It is sometimes called the City of Magnificent Distances, but it might with greater propriety be termed the City of Magnificent In tentions…. Spacious avenues, that begin in nothing, and lead nowhere; streets, mile-long, that only want houses, roads, and inhabitants; public buildings that need but a public to be complete; and ornaments of great thoroughfares, which only lack great thoroughfares to ornament–are its leading features.

Charles Dickens
Washington, D.C.
