This lovely park adjacent to the White House provides many perspectives of Washington DC.

There are the obvious views of the White House and all of the security that goes with protecting the president and all that work and live there.

There is a constant presence of protest groups including The White House Peace Vigil that has been in place since 1981 protesting nuclear weapons. On any given day there are multiple groups of protestors exercising their 1st Amendment rights.

There is also the historical perspective with a statue of Andrew Jackson in the center of the park and statues of Lafayette, Rochambeau, Kosciuszko, and von Steuben at the four park corners.

Lastly, this is just a nice green space upon which to sit and people watch.

There is an amazing amount of history within Washington DC, but Lafayette Square is the cornerstone, really! The first cornerstone laid in the city of any major structure was here on Sept. 13, 1792 and George Washington did it himself. Granted it was not the pomp and parade of the following year laying the cornerstone of the National Capitol, but if you come to Lafayette Square, make sure you come with a National Nightmares Guide on the Capital Controversy tour, you will learn far more than you ever expected or even realized, including some of the latest controversy surrounding the BLM movement as riots raged nightly throughout different areas of the city.

Lafayette Square is every bit a part of Washington, D.C., as the White House, U.S. Capitol, Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, Jefferson Memorial, National Mall and Smithsonian Institution. Located at 16th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue Northwest, directly north of the White House on H Street, bounded by Jackson Place on the West, Madison Place on the East and Pennsylvania Avenue on the South, it is named for Gilbert du Motier, Marquis de Lafayette, a French aristocrat and hero of the American Revolutionary War and includes several statues of Revolutionary War heroes from Europe, including Lafayette. However, the centerpiece of the seven-acre public park is a famous statute of early 19th century U.S. President and War of 1812 hero Andrew Jackson waving his hat on horseback with both of the horse's front hooves raised. In its early years, the land was used at various times as a racetrack, graveyard, zoo, slave market, encampment for soldiers during the War of 1812 and the site for political protests and celebrations. In the 19th century, the buildings around the square includes the homes of Washington's most prominent residents, including Henry Clay, Martin Van Buren, William Wilson Corcoran, John Hay, Henry Adams and Dolley Madison. It originally was part of the President's Park, which also included the White House, Ellipse, Eisenhower Executive Office Building and the Treasury Building. In 1824, it was renamed in honor of the Marquis de Lafayette.

Αν και η πλατεία βρίσκεται μπροστά από τον λευκό οίκο, ήταν βρώμικη το άγαλμα ήταν γεμάτο με κουτσουλιες. Περιτριγυρισμένη από φράχτες και πλακάτ από διαδηλώσεις και γκράφιτι. Οι φράχτες έκλειναν παρα πολλά οικοδομικά τετράγωνα και η μόνη είσοδος ήταν από την πλατεία Λαφαγιετ, επίσης υπήρχαν πολλή άστεγοι που υποβαθμιζαν το μέρος.

I went to Lafayette Square in July 2021. I walked through it carefully at 7:30 am in the morning and there were not very many people there. It is a beautiful square with five statues. In the center of the square is a statue of Andrew Jackson on a horse. In each corner of the square is a statue of a foreign-born hero of the American Revolutionary War - Lafayette, Kosciuszko, Von Steuben and Rochambeau. It is very interesting to read about their history and the role they played. You can also see Saint John's Episcopal Church from the outside as you walk around the side of the park that is the furthest from the White House. The street in front of the church has been renamed Black Lives Matter Plaza. The church itself is closed. I really enjoyed my careful walk around Lafayette Square early in the morning to take photos.

Gloomy Day - But Beautiful Blossoms

We were back in Washington, DC, for wife’s meetings in March. While the weather was gloomy, and mostly overcast, the blossoms in Lafayette Square were outstanding.

On this trip, we were staying immediately across the street from Lafayette Square, at the Hay-Adams, so after breakfast, I took a stroll.

The Square was just starting to come back to life, after Winter, and several fountains/water features were being reworked, and repaired. The grass was just beginning to emerge, so there were still many worn areas, that were bare from Winter. The general plantings were limited, but oh my, most of the trees in the Square were in full bloom! They were gorgeous, and I only regret that the sod was still in such poor shape, and the weather was so ugly. Even the beds of daffodils were looking pretty bad. Still, the blossoms made up for the weather.

I walked all of the Square, taking in the statues (more than I remembered), and also, the views of the White House - but like the sod, and the fountains, it was a work in progress. There was a hideous white fence surrounding the south side, while work was being done. Fortunately, we did have nice views of it from our room, on the south of the Square, as only the top story was visible over that fence, from most vantage points.

Besides that fence around the White House, one of the large Federal buildings, adjacent to Lafayette Square, was under wraps and scaffolding too. Some of the vistas, that I have appreciated in the past, were just not there - construction.

Still, the beautiful blossoms made up for construction, and I just took time to enjoy what I had - and not dwell on what I had hoped to see.

Lafayette Square is rather unremarkable but so full of history! It’s a great place to walk, and it’s cooler than walking along paved areas because you can walk in the grass, and especially great if you have children because they can run and stretch and play! There are plenty of statues to see and learn about. Right now there are lots of barricades around making it difficult to get into the square from many directions.

Эта площадь перед Белым домом не только замечательно обрамляет главную достопримечательность Вашингтона с севера, но и дает возможность поразмышлять над истоками независимости США от Великобритании и о роли тех лиц, которые способствовали победе. Из пяти бронзовых памятников, установленных на этой площади, только один памятник коренному американцу – генералу, президенту и одному из основателей Демократической парии Эндрю Джексону. Остальные четыре памятника – иностранцам: двум французам – маркизу де Лафайет и генералу Жану де Рашамбо, немцу – барону Фридриху Вильгельму фон Штойбену, и поляку – генералу Костюшко. Именно с этой площади открывается основной вид на Белый дом. Здесь можно хорошо отдохнуть в тени или понаблюдать за протестующими, которые почти всегда есть перед резиденцией американского президента.

A Beautiful Significant Square in May

In May, we were back to Washington, DC, as my wife had meetings on “The Hill.” Though before Cherry Blossom time, there were so many other flowering trees, that it really could not have been better, and I took in so very many in Lafayette Square, just north of the White House.

I had walked through Lafayette Square many times, but had never really taken the time to explore it, until this visit. The weather was nice (though changing), and I had time to kill, before I headed to the near-by Off the Record bar, in the Hay Adams Hotel, just north of the Square.

I thought that I rather knew Lafayette Square, but realized that I did not - I had never been to the East, or West sides - just walking through, toward the White House. This visit, I walked the entire square’s periphery, plus the interconnecting pathways, in between. During my walk, I took in many statues, that I had never noticed before, and spent time just taking in the Square, with its blooming trees - absolutely lovely!

Also, there is interesting, historical architecture, on all sides of the Square, and walking the periphery gave me some good views, though a bit of the westside was cut off with construction work. Still, easy to look beyond a few barricades.

Lovely, serene is such a busy city, and historically significant - I spent almost 2 hours here, and enjoyed every minute. I will return, and for more than a simple stroll through, going somewhere else.
