It's open during construction, the Starbucks is busy in the morning. Metro stop so people are always coming and going. Best part was watching the window cleaners hanging from ropes on the building next door.

Workers from the neighborhood flood in here at lunch time to get take out or to sit at a counter and eat a sandwich. Otherwise this is not much of a shopping mall, but definitely a hub on the Metro system.

I had seen better cleaner well everywhere. This is the worst mall I have ever been in my entire life. Places like this shouldn't exist especially not in a close proximity to such a great buildings than Washington has.

This is no doubt a very nice subway stop for an efficient metro line with a few food shops. Unfortunately it's not much more than this but does have some great entry feature.

This is a busy and centralized Metro stop more than anything else. There are a few shops and a couple of food choices, but it seems pretty mundane overall. Unless this is a Metro changing or departing point, its probably not worth a special visit.

The statute is nice but this really just a very busy Metro stop with buildings all around it. I would not make go out of my way to visit.
