  1. As I saw on the Internet the city map of Washington DC as published 1792, what I observed is that it has somewhat related to that of the city of Philadelphia. It can be implied from the map provided that both of these cities were built at the intersection of major rivers. Among these rivers are the Schuylkill River and the Delaware River in Philadelphia.
