Wikipedia Description: Farragut Square
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Farragut Square is a city square in Washington, D.C.'s Ward 2. It is bordered by K Street NW on the north, I Street NW to the south, and on the east and west by segments of 17th Street NW, and it interrupts Connecticut Avenue NW. It is serviced by two stops on the Washington Metro rail system, Farragut North on the Red Line and Farragut West on the Blue and Orange lines.
Farragut Square is a hub of downtown DC, at the center of a bustling daytime commercial and business district. The neighborhood includes major hotels, legal and professional offices, news media offices, travel agencies, and countless restaurants including two underground food courts. Sometimes events are scheduled for the lunchtime crowds which gather in and around the square, such as the free "Farragut Sounds in the Square" jazz concert series, held every Thursday from noon to 2 p.m. from July 3 to August 19. With its heavy pedestrian traffic, it also serves as a popular site for leafletting, TV camera opinion polls, and for commercial promotions and political activity such as canvassing and demonstrations.
The most prominent institution on the square is the Army Navy Club, on the southeast. Since the commercial building boom of the 1960s, there is little residential property in the area, and the square is mostly quiet after business hours. Many of the sandwich shops and coffeehouses that cater to neighborhood workers close before the dinner hour, as do the many street vendors. In recent years, however, especially since the 2003 rehabilitation of the park, movie screenings and similar evening activities have become more common, as have nightclubs in adjacent downtown areas.
The square is a known hangout for bicycle messengers and for pigeons, sparrows, and a few starlings.
On Fridays, several food carts congregate in an activity known as "Farragut Friday".
In the center of the square is a statue of David G. Farragut, ...More...

2020 photos: Well, that was a year, wasn't it? The COVID-19 pandemic cut off most events here in DC after March 11.
The child president's handling of the pandemic was a series of disastrous missteps and lies, encouraging his minions to not wear masks and dramatically increasing infections and deaths here.The BLM protests started in June, made all the worse by the child president's inability to have any empathy for anyone other than himself. Then of course he tried to steal the election in November. What a year!
Equipment this year: I continued to use my Fuji XS-1 cameras but, depending on the event, I also used a Nikon D7000.
The farthest distance I traveled after that was about 40 miles. I only visited sites in four states -- Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia and DC. That was the least amount of travel I had done since 1995.
Number of photos taken this year: about 246,000, the fewest number of photos I had taken in any year since 2007.
