“Brutalist Example”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

I am not a fan of Brutalist architecture at all, it it hideous. Brutalist architecture is the style of exposed concrete, like this building. But, it is the J. Edgar Hoover building, soon to be vacated and most likely demolished, so you have to see it while it's here. No tours and the area is a little deserted, but I'm glad I went by it. Interesting to see where the FBI operates.

“Cool to see”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

It's interesting to see for someone like me who's heard so much about the FBI but never actually seen it in real life. Apart from that, building is really nothing special, they don't allow visitors and there isn't much to do there...
