Another childhood memory and passed by many times heading into the city. The Curtis Brothers Giant chair! In beautiful Southeast DC. Not so beautiful these days. It has had its share of urban blight and crime. You shouldn’t have any problems during the day. The chair is indeed a must see for those seeking the big stuff. We even had chairs like this in our suburban Maryland home in the 1960s. Many urban housing, strip malls and bars are among the main stretch! MLK Boulevard. Saint Elizabeths Hospitol not to far from here. This area saw much destruction during the 1968 roits in Washington. So if in Southeast. Checkout the giant chair. I don’t believe you can sit on the chair anymore. People in the past have.
