Union Station: One of the busiest places in town

Shamaria Bell, Editor in Chief

A bustling hot spot of foot traffic, tour buses and trains,  Union Station in Washington D.C. is used more as a pit stop on the way to more famous attractions than a destination in itself. However, visitors who take the time to appreciate the historical importance of  DC’s central train station, have the opportunity to take in the splendor of the curved glass dome, the presidential seals and the stone soldiers that overlook the main lobby.

According to Tony Summers of AAC Realty, the company that manages Union Station, in terms of foot traffic, the station is “five times busier than Tyson’s Mall.” It happens to be many times more historically significant as well.
