Parking garage where Bob Woodward met with Deep Throat gets historical marker

WTOP.com
Arlington County, Va., has posted a sign marking the infamous underground parking garage where, at parking space 32D, Bob Woodward met with his secret source, “Deep Throat,” as The Washington Post was investigating the Watergate scandal. The sign had been ready for three years, but installation was delayed, awaiting some kind of “pomp.” Finally the government put it up last week. “As with all these changes … you don’t want to lose that something happened and this is where things occurred,” Michael Leventhal, Arlington’s historic preservation coordinator, told WTOP’s Paul Shinkman. A 2005 Washington Post story about the garage noted that it wouldn’t work for a late-night rendezvous anymore; it closes at 11 p.m. || Fact-check: W. Joseph Campbell writes that the sign inaccurately describes the information that Felt provided to Woodward.
