3rd Longest Escalator in the World


While eating with our friends Andrew and Stephanie at Capital City Brewing tonight, we started talking about the longest escalators in the world.  Over the weekend, A and S took the red line up to the Wheaton stop just to check out the second longest escalator in the world (longest in the western hemisphere!).  We think the first is somewhere in Russia?

But the THIRD is our very own Rosslyn metro station.

 I made a video so that everyone can experience the ride.

Two minutes and twenty-eight seconds!  

P.S.  The SHORTEST escalator in the world is in a shopping mall in Japan.  I love how people choose it over the 4 stair steps right next to it!
