Garage of 'Deep Throat' Watergate fame to be razedtags: Deep Throat
The famous parking garage where Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward met his secret Watergate source, known as Deep Throat, 40 years ago will be demolished to make way for residential and commercial buildings.
The Arlington County Board voted unanimouslyduring the weekend to approve the replacement of the two 1960s-era buildings at the site in Northern Virginia's Rosslyn community with a 28-story residential tower and a 24-story commercial building.
The buildings, located just over the Potomac River from Washington, sat atop the parking garage where Woodward met Mark Felt, then the second-highest official in the FBI, who provided important tips and key information on the unfolding scandal that brought down President Nixon in 1974.
