Manhattan Laundry
Washington, DC
From what I can gather, the Manhattan Laundry was a former laundromat. It is now an apartment building. I usually don't go for residential architecture but this one is irresistable with all the glass block and porcelain enamel. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1994.
