Union Station

Washington D.C.’s Union Station, in addition to being a major train hub and leisure destination, is the busiest Metrorail station in Washington’s system. Customers may exit directly to the Amtrak and MARC train platforms, or, as pictured here, onto street level in front of the station’s entrance. Trivia: This shot of Union Station can be seen at the beginning of Alfred Hitchcock’s film Strangers on a Train (1951), when the Metro entrance was utilized as a passenger drop-off point for automobiles and taxicabs.
