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.

2020 photos: Well, that was a year, wasn't it? The COVID-19 pandemic cut off most events here in DC after March 11.
Trump's handling of the pandemic was a series of disastrous missteps and lies, encouraging his minions to not wear masks and dramatically increasing infections and deaths here. As the chant goes -- Hey, hey, POTUS-A; how many folks did you kill today? The BLM protests started in June, made all the worse by the child president's inability to have any empathy for anyone other than himself. Then of course he tried to steal the election in November. What a year!
The farthest distance I traveled after that was about 40 miles. I only visited sites in four states -- Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia and DC. That was the least amount of travel I had done since 1995.
Number of photos taken this year: about 246,000, the fewest number of photos I had taken in any year since 2007.
