The waterfall on the way up to Dean's house was frozen. I'd never seen a frozen waterfall before. It matched my toes.
Frozen waterfalls are quite common up here in the frigid north (well, not in Delaware, but I grew up in Pittsburgh).

If you are asking about the building where FIRST is located, I do have pictures somewhere that I can send you. It is in an old mill building along the river, which have all been converted to commercial purposes now. The building that FIRST is in also houses a children's science museum and a museum of the textile industry (I visited the textile museum - it was fascinating). I've attached a picture. The first floor holds FIRST Place, the public area where they hold events such as summer camps and training sessions. The offices are on the second floor and are smaller than you probably think. The Engineering area, where they design and prototype the game, is in a super secret secure area in the basement.
