You can call it a similarity between the two cities but you’d be very wrong. They’re actually two different names also:
Subway in New York and Metro here in Washington. (Though it did say MetroCard on the New York subway ticket). The New York subway in my opinion was much better in getting you from point A to point B. Understandably it’s a much larger city so it should have a million different stops, but not having to walk twelve blocks at a time was nice. The Metro here in D.C. is much cleaner but the fare system is flawed and confusing and the train car doesn’t stop everywhere and if it does, then we didn’t know about it.
This is an obvious difference. New York is by far the largest city in the United States, five million more in popuation than second place Los Angeles. The only time D.C. has seemed stuffed with people all over the streets was Sunday through Tuesday because of the Presidential Inauguration. Other than that, Washington D.C. has played a barren new planet compared to the Big Apple.
New York New York had a setting compared to the Dust Bowl, just a dirty moth ball unlike the neat, clean, organized and environmentally-friendly Washington D.C. The sidewalks at times are made of marble, no trash littering everywhere, and there are very several less homeless people. Maybe it’s the buildings, or just the history itself that makes D.C. glow CLEAN.
The last one I’ve got is sort of trailing off from the cleanliness one above. Washington’s architecture heighten’s their cleanliness appeal. Katherine said,” Every single building looks like the White House..” That quote sums it up. The Roman-like grand cathedral buildings are astonishing. Astonishing in the fact that every single one of them looks like that, it’s absolutely incredible.
“Hey Mark, was D.C. like New York at all?”
