Protip: This is a really bad question to ask when visiting the National Mall. We have 8 buildings surrounding the Mall, and a total of 19 museums, 9 research centers and the National Zoo. A S.H.I.E.L.D agent should know better!
(We think she means the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History in this case.)
I love that this is on the Smithsonian’s tumblr

"BLEBS BLEBS BLEBS PTPPTTT AAAAA"
literally me going to work
When my mother started doing physical therapy after her operation (several months ago) I sent her this video. Her exercises usually make her cry, so I sit in the room and make the reluctant Weddell seal noises for her. She says this helps.
This is literally me, as I procrastinate writing this damn memo.
Me getting out of bed in the morning. Bleeeeeerch…meehbleerp blerp.

The Brooklyn Navy Yard Book John Bartelstone
“New York City’s largest and oldest industrial facility, the historic Brooklyn Navy Yard occupies 250-acres on the East River between the Williamsburg and Manhattan Bridges, and is presently one of New York City’s major industrial sites. One of the last remnants of Brooklyn’s industrial supremacy, the Yard has experienced tremendous change: functioning from the age of wind to that of diesel. As a cradle of naval evolution, the Yard has had to reinvent itself constantly, and this is made evident by the presence of buildings and structures spanning from the 1830s to the 1950s. The Navy Yard was shut down in 1966 and reopened again in 1971 when the City of New York bought it with the intention of redevelopment. Great ships are still repaired there, and the Yard, now an industrial park with a variety of manufacturers and light industries, functions as a refuge from a city that has mostly forgotten that a mixed economy is a key to its survival.”
