Any station I didn't name is safe.
I mean all of the stations are safe for the most part but its the area the surrounds some of these stations that can be sketchy or have high crime. But you shouldn't have any problems since you wouldn't be venturing out to those parts. The intermediate stations are relatively safe but things do happen in the area that they are in. Shaw, Columbia Heights and Shaw have housing projects or seedy blocks not too far a way from them and things to go down in those areas and robberies are high in those places at night. U street is okay for the most part but things do happen, like random shootings to robberies (doesn't happen everyday per se, but still enough to be noticeable.

To simply put it, don't walk around with expensive stuff visible and you'll be fine and dandy.

Who wants to bet this is the same troll as JoeyAmbrosia?

Seriously, no real person talks like this.

Ok, I was hoping we'd have a mature discussion here but apparently when race is considered, it's impossible. I know, nothing new, still...
