Was there

Someone pointed out that our building is visible in this still from (the regrettable satire) Being There (1979). Chance is walking south toward the Capitol. What would become NPR HQ is the white four-story building (only three stories are clearly visible) in the left (east) side of the frame, behind the Texaco sign. The gas station is gone, to be replaced by a grassy area in front of the D.C. Housing Authority building. On the right (west) side of the street, it would appear that the Sibley Plaza apartments aren't in place yet: the foreshortening makes judging location a little tricky.
