What is the tallest thing in Washington DC?
Washington DC is not known for having especially tall buildings; it's rather on the squat side for a city of its size. The Hughes Memorial Tower, a radio tower used by WDCW TV and the Washington DC police department, is the tallest structure in the city. At 761 feet it's more than 200 feet taller than the Washington Monument (555 ft), the tallest structure in DC that isn't a radio tower. The tallest building (the Washington Monument is not considered a "building") is the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception (a Catholic church, if you couldn't guess from the name) at 329 feet.
