Georgetown… a Dad guided tour…


A hundred years ago, exactly one year before I was born(according to my sister…), my Dad went to Georgetown.  In fact I think he may have been there, or still in the area when a certain set of steps became famous worldwide.  Hint: That is a reference to a Horror movie, and a priest…

What better person to give you a guided tour… here is what Georgetown looks like:

Old brick buildings…

This house was for sale… 6.5 Million, IIRC

Between The Exorcist stairs and the old trolley station, HUGE house…

Graffiti at the top of The Exorcist stairs, reminded me of Operation: Mindcrime and Max Payne.

The Infamous stairs… Apparently no one that goes to Georgetown likes them, cause they are a bitch to use, not because some dude flew down them at the end of a movie..

Steps up the to the Main Campus…

No clue why I took this one…

Awesome, Crazy, Building…

Founding crest mosaic…

Washington gave one of his speeches form this porch, just across from the Jesuit living quarters…  You can Taste the history in some of these places.

The new and the Old, the Building on the right was not as big when my Dad and Mom attended Georgetown.

These are the buildings where my parents learned how to do SCIENCE!

Dad and Little sis..

So much brick…

Yep, This is in fact DC Cupcake.. but wait till you see the line…

And I couldn’t get the entire thing…

Awesome window… and this was pretty common for some of the more swanky places…and yes it is done on purpose 🙂

One of the oldest banks in the area…

The Canal… the path on the right is where mules would walk to pull the barges…

Same Canal, Facing DC Proper…

 

More to come from the area soon.
