Went on a photo safari yesterday afternoon/evening with my brother. Our meeting point was Washington's Union Station.
Built in 1907 at a cost of $125 million, Union Station became the city’s leading portal and transportation hub for more than 50 years. It was through Union Station that many of America's troops embarked to New York City and the ships that would carry them across the Atlantic for deployment to the European Theater during World War II. In the 1960s and 70s, Union Station fell into disrepair—the effect of the emergence of air travel as the preferred form of transportation. In 1981, restoration began on the station after much debate about what to do with the space. Three years later, the station reopened to its former glory. Today, Union Station shuttles more than 32 million people and passengers through its doors, once again making it a major transit hub in the Eastern Corridor.
