Phari’s Photos – Gravelly Point

Photos and words by @Pharipedia. Phari is one of my favorite photographers who contributes to our Instagram. He’s volunteered to share a bit more with us from his adventures around town. Phari lives on Capitol Hill.

“Arguably, the best spot to watch planes land and takeoff in the United States is right across the Potomac river, north of the National Airport, and right off the Mount Vernon Trail. Referred to as Gravelly Point, the area was where Captain John Alexander (City of Alexandria’s namesake) had built his home called Abingdon in 1746, and where later George Washington’s beloved granddaughter, Eleanor “Nelly” Parke Custis was born. Pack a picnic, lean back, and watch the planes pass just a hundred feet above.”
