One of the nation’s busiest train stations is only a few blocks from the law school.
Union Station is a historic train station and shopping mall. The dramatic architecture and statues around the building give it a casino-like quality, but it’s usually a much cheaper visit.
Union Station is a favorite lunch spot of mine.
The station is only a 10 minute walk from the law center, but far enough that I don’t have to worry about running into classmates while face-deep in food of questionable nutritional value.
Union Station is also a highly convenient place to buy emergency clothes — I’ve already dashed over to buy a tie for a suit during my lunch break.
During orientation, Georgetown’s head of security discouraged us from using Union Station at night, and I quickly understood why. Immediately outside of the station are panhandlers and an open-air drug market. There are also plenty of security guards around during the day, but I don’t want to find out what it’s like at night.
Daytime lunch and tie-buying trips will have to suffice for now.
