The past few days I’ve been in New York City on business, and never before have I been struck with such love for our city. I’ve already aired my grievances about the big apple, but this trip particularly reinforced my love of the capital. Walking off the Acela into Union Station truly felt like coming home. I breathed a huge sigh of relief when I spotted the Capitol through the double doors. New York is fine, but DC is where it’s at, yo.
Convenient I should write for a blog called We Love DC, now isn’t it? So I distilled the things I love about DC down into five pictures, for your viewing pleasure. We can call it an Ode To The Things I Love About DC Today… And thus I share it with you…
1) Union Station is NOT Penn Station. Thank GOD. Penn Station is chaos and flusterclucking at it’s finest, and makes me want to scream a little. Union station is gorgeous, classy, and much calmer.
2) Our Metro is better. Way better. Our Metro lines don’t randomly turn around and go the opposite direction without warning, and I don’t usually know for 100% certain someone just urinated where I am standing.
