Image 5 is definitely at White Flint. My only question is when was it taken?

1. Rosslyn
2. Huntington? Not sure, but it's Fairfax and not the orange line so not many choices.
3. Columbia Heights.
4. Union Station.
5. White Flint. Cranes tipped it off for me.

4. Union Station
5. White Flint (and it's an older picture, circa 2009? It's missing the shiny new building next door to the station, and the tall building next to Whole Foods is still going up...)

1) Looks western red line, maybe... Cleveland Park? Friendship Heights?
2) Well, Vienna is the only station remotely near Fairfax, so I have to go with that.
3) No clue, but it looks downtownish, and that could be a new GW building, so Foggy Bottom?
4) The multiple flags make me think this is Metro Center, being the flagship station.
5) Absolutely positive this is White Flint. The NRC building is unmistakeable.

1. Rosslyn
2. East Falls Church
3. Clarendon
4. Union Station
5. White Flint (my home station!)

First 3 I am far less confident on...

1. Rosslyn- clues were the 4 escalators and the elevator shaft

2. Huntington- Pretty easy with the plethora of clues: in an open cut leading into a tunnel, Fairfax County, etc

3. Columbia Heights- The only really difficult one, but I was able to narrow it down.

4. Union Station- Immediately recognizable I've probably been up and down those same escalators at least a thousand times.

5. White Flint- The iconic NRC building is instantly recognizable
