An Imaginary Tour of Pennsylvania Avenue

Pennsylvania Avenue 15 Street Side

At 15th Street, just past Pershing Park, Pennsylvania Avenue comes to a temporary end, right at the corner where Admiral Cockburn stayed the night he burned the President's House.

Pennsylvania Avenue disappears at 15th Street for a detour around the Department of the Treasury Building.  With renovation of the building underway, the grounds in the rear of the building are taken up by a construction staging area, seen here.
