The Underground Economy: D.C.’s Richest and Poorest Metro Stops

The Washington City Paper posted an interested article on their website about how the metro bridges some major gaps in income around the DC region. The median household income along the subway system ranges from $147,630 near the Friendship Heights station on the Red Line to $31,735 in Congress Heights on the Green Line. Figures were pulled from the American Community Survey’s 2011 5-Year Estimates.

The most volatile route in the DC Metro system is the Orange Line. It reaches upwards of $142,000 at East Falls Church and bottoms out at around $34,000 at Minnesota Ave 18 stops later.
