THE F.B.I. BUILDING is enormous
The F.B.I. Headquarters Building is an imposing building. It is an entire square
block, And has a powerful strong look to it.-Just how I think of the FBI.
We didn't have time for a tour, but wanted to show this magnificent building.
they do offer limited tours for a peek into the headquarters. The tour includes displays of gansters and
Most wanted fugitives, confiscated weapons, glass-enclosed laboratories with working
technicians working on "clues"
The building was dedicated in 1975 and named in honor of FBi director, J. Edgar Hoover.
According to the book-"The building has drawn few defenders in the unrelenting criticism of its ugliness". This surprised me because I think it looks magnificent.
They are just used to the Roman classical buildings with pillars and such. But this
is a beautiful modern piece.
