Underneath all the big buildings that occupy Crystal City is an area that most commuters have given the unofficial name of the “Crystal City Underground”.
The Underground runs parallel to Route 1 to connect buildings and apartment to the Crystal City Metro station on the Blue Line.
The official name of the area is Crystal City Shops and this includes shops and restaurants that reside in the underground space as well as the establishments that are located on Crystal Drive.

Exposed DC has partnered with the Crystal City Business Improvement District to create a gallery of images from local photographers. Exposed DC is a nonprofit group that connect photographers for networking, mentoring and exhibition opportunities. They work within the Metro area to strengthen the local photography community.
The “Art in the Everyday” exhibit started in March 2017 and features over 100 images from both professional and amateurs photographers. The images showcased are “abstract and graphically-arresting images that make us take a second look at the environment around us”. Simply put, the images are of places within the DC area that you’ve probably seen before but not as portrayed by the image.
You can find the images as you walk the underground walls which will be on exhibit until September.
