Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

Historic park near the White House and the National Mall with several monuments and statues. Worth stopping by when you're in the area.

Our guide took us just inside and talked to us about the history of Lafayette Square on our visit to the White House. There are several statues and a nice park. I was surprised to see Andrew Jackson on his horse at the center of the square, while the lovely statue of Lafayette is in the southeast corner of the park. This was a short but enjoyable visit.

I like the squares in DC. It makes the city feel more European. This one is pretty nice and has a big statue to look at. The roads around it do have a lot of traffic.

My second visit to Lafayette Square, right behind the White House, proved just as captivating as the first. This viewpoint offers a unique perspective of the White House, and it's perhaps the closest you can get without delving into the official visitor center. Lafayette Square boasts the charm of a typical park, graced by the imposing presence of the General Andrew Jackson statue at its heart.

Wandering around the square, I stumbled upon some intriguing sights that reminded me of my previous visit a few years ago.

Notably, a lone silent protester with all sorts of paraphernalia. The presence of security personnel in the vicinity is a testament to the square's proximity to the White House, where security is paramount. Amidst the sea of tourists, you'll also find locals immersed in their daily routines, lending a genuine sense of life to the square and its adjacent pedestrian street.

Lafayette Square offers the perfect break or rest, especially after a trek from your nearest stop or the parking spot for your car when in search of this free close-up view of the White House.

Perhaps while you relax in peaceful green surroundings, you might spot a celebrity doing the same or passing by, perhaps not. Just enjoy the calm atmosphere while you are there.

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.
