Location: 15th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue, right outside what used to be Riggs Bank
When I see a utility box like this, open and exposed to all, I have an odd urge to flip some switches.
I haven’t of course, I don’t wanna get shot by the trigger-happy Secret Service at the White House next door, but this is a temptation.
Back in Russia, I had an odd red button on the wall that said “Stop : Moscow”. I never did press it, thinking the whole city would stop, but I often wondered.
Have you ever succumbed to the urge? Ever flipped a switch like this just to see what happened? I think this one might change lights or it might change lives.
