Tallest Buildings

This lists ranks Washington skyscrapers that stand at least 150 feet (46 m), based on standard height measurement. This includes spires and architectural details but does not include antenna masts.

Famous quotes containing the words buildings and/or tallest:

    The American who has been confined, in his own country, to the sight of buildings designed after foreign models, is surprised on entering York Minster or St. Peter’s at Rome, by the feeling that these structures are imitations also,—faint copies of an invisible archetype.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    But not the tallest there, ‘tis said,
    Could fathom to this pond’s black bed.
    Edmund Blunden (1896–1974)
