I want to drive from Baltimore, md to the Anacostia Metro Station and then get the green line to the Bible Museum at,400 4th st. is this safe?
Without commenting on safety, it will probably be faster to instead park at New Carrollton or Greenbelt. Why drive all the way to Anacostia just to backtrack?
I suppose in order to save money on metro fare. The fare from Anacostia will be about half that from Greenbelt.
What can we tell you, Anacostia station has a higher crime rates than others but there certainly isn't close to a 100 pct probability that you will be the victim of a crime (or that your car will be), of course. In fact, Anacostia probably has about the same crime rate as Gallery Place in DC, if you'd go there. I'd park in Anacostia, especailly if returning in daytime The Bible Museum area is certainly safe enough during daylight. Why don't you just drive the entire way, that area is a bit off the beaten track and you could be able to find parking on the street there or just a few blocks south of there, easily. That's what I would do (and what I have done).
Otherwise, and the reason is to save metro fare, I think Anacostia is safe enough but you will have to transfer, it's not on the same metro line. New Carrollton is. Anacostia was the number 2 station for crime in 2016, but Gallery Place was number 3, after all (Minnesota Ave was top).
It's possible that the reason is that the Baltimore-Washington Parkway is a straight shot to that Metro station because it turns into the Anacostia Freeway, which might save time for someone coming from Baltimore. Nonetheless, I agree that there are other ways to get to the museum that might work out better for this poster.
Thank you, That helped me a lot on my decision. I will drive all the way
Is there even parking at Anacostia?
You could park for free at (most) marc stations and take commuter rail to Union Station and then make your way to the bible museum from there as well. That'd be the least amount of driving overall but probably not any cheaper at the end of the day.
I found that I can park within one block of the museum for $20 all day. I would rather drive since the ages of my passengers are in their late 80s and getting on and off the train or metro would be harder for them. Thanks all for your help
