Wikipedia Description: Archives – Navy Memorial – Penn Quarter (WMATA station)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Archives–Navy Memorial–Penn Quarter (formerly Archives and Archives–Navy Memorial) is a Washington Metro station in Washington, D.C. on the Green and Yellow Lines.
The station is located in Northwest Washington at 7th Street between Pennsylvania and Indiana Avenues, and it is very close to Gallery Place-Chinatown, so close that the lights of one station can be seen down the tunnel from the other. It takes its name from the nearby National Archives, the U.S. Navy Memorial, and the Penn Quarter neighborhood in which the station is located. It is a popular stop for tourists, with easy access to the northern side of the National Mall. Service began on April 30, 1983. Until 2005, the station was simply known as Archives-Navy Memorial. At that time it was renamed Archives-Navy Memorial-Penn Quarter, in recognition of the nearby Penn Quarter neighborhood.
There is a provision for a future second mezzanine at the south end of the station, with a knock-out panel visible on the station's south wall.
