One of the things I noticed yesterday on my walk along Crystal Drive was the series of nodes, if you will. The overpass is the dividing line, with the northern half having more focus. I think the transitway will bring a bit more cohesiveness this way.
This art work is titled "Rhythm and Balance." The artist is Marsha Staiger, who has a studio at the Torpedo Factory Art Gallery in Old Town.
I was so very pleased to see this children's center right on Crystal Drive. This is what that used to call a "Kodak moment."
Ah, ha, the real reason for this walk is revealed!!
Crystal City has these great contrasts of bulky, Brutalist buildings and the parks and new urbanscapes.
The VRE stop (Cue BTO's "Takin' Care of Business.")
Love the design of this park.
And the last word goes to our sponsors (yea, right...)
