On Thursday I noted Washingtonian’s “How to Be Alone” feature package and asked on Twitter what people like to do when they’re alone around here.

Here are some of my favorite responses from other people, which include quiet time on the Mall and posting up at the Portrait Gallery for primo people-peeping.
