Reply to comment by well-that-was-fast in Train to Ashburn! by albinotuba

Agree wholeheartedly except I'd amend this to say outside of the Beltway. Stations outside of DC but within DC (Arlington, Alexandria, Bethesda, Silver Spring, College Park , etc) usually aren't on suburban parking lots.

I agree there are few non-parking lot stations outside of DC, but this:

is pretty generous. Alexandria Eisenhower looks like this and King St isn't vastly better.

That's fair. Alexandria is especially bad. Better examples would be Arlington, Bethesda, and Silver Spring, all of which have walkable urban cores around their metro stations.
