DeFerrari and Sefton have created a highly illustrated architectural “biography” of one of DC’s most important boulevards. This north-south artery—which runs from the White House, through DC, and to the Maryland border—is as central to the cityscape as it is to DC’s history and culture. 

Praise for the book:

"DeFerrari and Sefton provide a rich and stimulating view of one of the great avenues of Washington, DC, and the United States."—Richard Longstreth, professor emeritus of American Studies, George Washington University

"DeFerrari and Sefton compellingly weave together a complex history of people and events that unexpectedly and intentionally crisscross and overlap the avenue as it courses through the city and time."—Kim Prothro Williams, architectural historian and author

"Authors DeFerrari and Sefton . . . document not only the built environment of Sixteenth Street, NW but its planners, architects, builders, developers, and occupants, as well as those who sought to demolish many of its most prized edifices (sometimes successfully) and those who prevailed in preserving one of America's most renowned streets."
Sally Berk, recipient of the District of Columbia Lifetime Achievement Award in Historic Preservation
