Where in Washington?

I really thought last week's "Where in Washington?" was going to be a tough one, which is why I provided a clue: The name of this structure oddly, and coincidentally, combines two names connected to a great American tragedy.

Of course, it was the Kennedy-Warren apartment building, one of the most handsome apartment buildings in town. (The Warren Commission investigated the assassination of John Kennedy.) About 99 percent of you got it right. But the first person to send in the correct answer was Rockville's Daryl Newhouse.

Think you're so smart? Okay, can you identify the area building pictured on this postcard (from the collection of Jerry McCoy):

If you think you know it, send your answer to me at kellyj@washpost.com. As always, the winner receives a Post Pulitzer Prize-winner's autograph on a Post postcard. I guarantee you you won't find that anywhere else.

I don't know what its called, but I remember staring at it out the window of my thesis adviser's office on P Street last year. As I recall, its not surrounded by a remarkably manicured grass field anymore...
