Founded in 1790 along the banks of the Potomac, the planned city’s layout was influenced by the Baroque style and drafted by French architect, Pierre Charles L’Enfant. The National Mall, rendered in bright green, is expansive, taking up as much space as the main stretch of the Las Vegas Strip.
The Potomac River, depicted in blue, bisects the plate and is the border between Washington, D.C. and Virginia. The green areas along the Virginia side of the plate are Rock Creek Park, which is twice the size of Central Park, and the enormous Arlington National Cemetery.
