  Picture of Union Station after getting off the Metro from the airport.  In 1901 Pennsylvania and Baltimore & Ohio Railroads built this place and it physically deteriorated over the years.  This terminal was the center of Washington life and was really busy during World War II, when as many as 200,000 people would go through here each day.

  Union Station after getting off the Metro.   The station reopened after a major renovation project in 1988 with shops, food court, restaurants, and  movie theater occupying the original building.  A new Amtrak terminal was added at the rear. It seems to be Washington's busiest places as evidenced 20 million people visiting here each year.

 "Union Station's" interior and exterior upper facade are guarded by a series of Roman centurion statues.
