George Washington University in DC has its own manhole cover design. The manhole cover pictures here is located next to the Foggy Bottom metro station. I’ve walked on this block dozens of times before and yet today was the first time I noticed the unique design on this manhole cover. 

What happened to the manhole covers on H Street NE? The manhole on the foreground is obviously missing, but so is the one in the background. In place of the manhole cover is a puddle covered with dark liquid.
