Washington D.C.’s Metro system makes the city run day-in and day-out, from sunrise to sunset and well into the heart of the night. It keeps a continuous stream of people moving and getting them practically anywhere they need to go, bringing tourists from one site to the next, commuters to their jobs downtown, and children and college students to and from school. Train stations are a gathering place for all types, a meeting grounds, and spaces that commuters converge and then disperse from.
Jessie Weiss, of Washington, D.C., sings Christian hymns outside of the Faragut North Station on Tuesday, June 3, 2014. Station entrances are high-traffic areas where panhandlers often congregate. “I’m not singing for money,” said Weiss. “I’m singing about God for people to hear, if they can hear, and asking them to turn to him.”
