Woodward met at a Rosslyn parking garage for Watergate investigation.

November 1, 2007

Arlington, Virginia’s office block neighborhood, Rosslyn, is the site of

the underground parking garage where Washington Post reporter
Bob Woodward rendezvoused with Mark Felt, the top FBI

official known as “Deep Throat.” As a confidential source, Felt helped

Woodward and his reporting partner, Carl Bernstein, publish stories

that led to the impeachment of President Nixon in 1974. The “Deep

Throat” garage is the garage where he met Deep Throat —
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deep_Throat_(Watergate)–

Woodward claimed that he would signal “Deep Throat” that he desired a

meeting by moving a flowerpot with a red flag on the balcony of his

apartment. When Deep Throat wanted a meeting he would make special

marks on page twenty of Woodward’s copy of The New York Times; he

would circle the page number and draw clock hands to indicate the

hour. They often met “on the bottom level of an underground garage

just over the Key Bridge in Rosslyn,” at 2:00 a.m. The garage is

located at 1401 Wilson Boulevard. Mark Feldt, a former #3 man, then #2 in the FBI, quit

smoking in 1943, but had reverted in 1970’s.

1401 Wilson Blvd’s grey brick parking garage wall is entered off N Nash St (between Key Blvd and Wilson Blvd).
Parking slot 32D is where, in 1972 and 1973, Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward met with high ranking FBI official Mark Feldt, named “Deep Throat” to protect his anonymity.
Parking space 32D is next to an exit door that leads three levels up from N Nash Street’s ground level to the N. Oak Street’s ground level. The pedestrian, main entrance of 1401 Wilson actually is on North Oak Street. The main entrance directly faces the intersection of N Oak St and 18th Street.

“Rosslyn Magazine,” Spring 2006, Vol. 1 Issue 1:

“There’s not a plaque at the garage entrance — yet. The garage is

inconspicuous at best, hidden behind a gray-bricked wall under the

commercial office building at 1401 Wilson Blvd., off N. Nash Street.

But it holds a unique place in American history.

In a dark quiet corner, slot 32D is the space where, in 1972 and 1973,

Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward would meet at two in the morning

with “Deep Throat,” his secret source on the Watergate break–in. The

information “Deep Throat” passed on to Woodward here in Rosslyn led to

the Watergate hearings and the resignation of President Richard M.

Nixon.

In the summer of 2005, an aging former FBI official, Mark Felt,

identified himself as “Deep Throat.” This led to days of intense

speculation by the news media — and many Rosslynites — as to the

identification of the garage. Finally, the following week, Woodward

revealed his long-held secret. For a couple of weeks that summer, slot

32D was swarming with reporters and news cameras.”

deep throat garage. Indeed, 32D occupies a dark corner in the lower

level of the garage and is adjacent to an exit door that leads up a

secluded stairwell and then onto the street, making it easy for Deep

Throat to slip away safely after each rendezvous. No clandestine

meetings —that we know of— happen there nowadays. (Could these

cigarette butts, found in 32D, mean something more than just an

innocent smoke?) Park in 32D and it is just another place to leave

your car. But ponder, if you will, just how many other ordinary places

might hold such secrets?
