低空鸟瞰华盛顿特区的中央部分 (1871)

华盛顿特区 (Washington D.C.) 于1790716日成为美国首都

殷范提设计了宽广的道路,以及众多开放式的空间,因此首都地区并不会成为一个充满拥挤大楼的城市。他知道人民在散步与休憩时需要许多公园。他把首都的街道规划成北、南、东、西的格子状。在殷范提的细心规划下,现在当你站在美国首都的前方,你可以清楚看到华盛顿纪念碑 (Washington Monument) 与林肯纪念堂 (Lincoln Memorial) 。当你看到自己首都的这些美景时,都应该要感谢殷范提呢!

L'Enfant designed wide avenues and open spaces so that the capital would not become a city of crowded buildings. He knew that people would need parks where they could walk and relax. The streets of the capital were oriented in a north, south, east, and west grid pattern. Because of L'Enfant's careful planning, when you stand on the steps of the U.S. Capitol today you can look down the mall and see all the way to the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial. When you see the beautiful views and dramatic landscapes of your nation's capital you can thank Pierre-Charles L'Enfant.
