The heart of the Nation's Capital.
The Mall is the heart of the Nation’s Capital and of the entire United States of America. Here, the nation celebrates, honors, and demonstrates its commitment to democracy.

      Great meeting place for the masses
      My partner and I were privileged to be part of the great marches in the 80's. We went for two and the crowds were overwhelming, quite stirring, the quilts were a moving moment for everyone. We have also visited at other times with family and alone, it's a great place to stroll and sit and take in the beauty that surrounds you.

      The Heart of Our Nation's Capital
      The National Mall doesn't really qualify as an institution in the structural sense, in that it is not a building. But it IS an institution, figuratively, since it is the heart of the nation's capital. As we prepare for our National Equality March in Washington, D.C., in October 2009, we need to recognize the beauty and importance of The Mall to all of us. It is the mostly grassy area bordered approximately by Constitution Avenue on the North, 1st Street on the East, Independence Avenue on the South, and 14th Street on the West. Stand in The Mall and look East and see the impressive U. S. Capitol, and look West and see the Washington Monument. I've seen 4th of July fireworks sitting on the grass here; I've had picnics with friends here, and I've heard free summer concerts here. The Mall is for ALL of us, and how appropriate that we will be here marching for what we believe!
