Discover history within songs of the DC Metro

by The 100 Companies

There are 91 songs for the 91 transit stops on the DC Metro system.

Jason Mendelson penned and recorded a unique song for every stop in the DC Metro system to represent the neighborhood, history, and facts about the area.

Nicknamed the Metro Man, Mendelson spent six and a half years on the project which includes two dozen guest musicians. Inspired by history and community such as the longest escalator in the western hemisphere (Wheaton Station) and St. Elizabeth’s Hospital, one of the first federally funded psychiatric hospitals in the country (Congress Heights) Mendelson’s songs capture different pieces of DC.
