A Little Case of Metro Envy
I just stumbled across this Metro Bits list celebrating metro art and architecture. There’s 40 cities singled out of the 161 that have underground metro systems. DC makes the cut.
Still I feel like we’re the Plain Jane at the supermodel party. Perhaps it’s because I’ve been desensitized to DC Metro’s artistic stylings by thousands of trips–though I don’t know that I ever took five seconds to appreciate G. Byron Peck’s mural at Metro Center. I can’t help but feel this might be an East Coast thing… our lives are scheduled down to the minute and we’re too busy getting from place to place to appreciate the aesthetic we do have.
