“Beautiful Monument under renovation”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

After the earthquake a couple of years ago, DC residents saw first hand the lengths the engineers needed to go to find out how damaged the monument had gotten--structural engineers were rappelling down the side of the monument to figure out what needed to be repaired. The monument is still closed but serves as a great landmark when walking around the Mall.

“So high!!”
Reviewed January 10, 2013 via mobile

Whenever my parents were driving around DC, I always looked at the monument and wondered how high it was as well as I was mystified. :)

“Cant miss it!”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

You will see this from Arlington and almost anywhere in DC. Great memorial. Love the way the memorials and structures line up. This one is the center piece.

“Still standing”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

The earthquake tried to shake it, and I understand it's still not open. But this landmark is such a center attraction that you have to try to see it from other points, like from the top of the old postal building etc.
