The new digs|
As of last Friday, my team is now housed at 6354 Walker lane. we are in "Metro Park" between the Franconia Springfield Metro station and the INOVA facility. Neither Google maps nor maps live correctly identifies the building. There are two buildings together on the West side of Walker. I'm in the one to the North.
Hey, you're right near our Springfield office! But don't go to that one. Cause they don't have me. ;)
In that case, there would be no reason to go there.
You are 5 minutes from my office.
You live a lot farther away than I do. What is your commute time like?
Perhaps we could do lunch some time?

If you're going out for lunch, then make sure you're armed. DC thugs love to ride the Metro, pay a visit to that part of Springfield, and then hop a ride home.
Thugs taking the Metro from a place where the law abiding are disarmed to one where they are armed? That doesn't sound like much of a plan.

Tell that to the victims of the muggings in the Springfield Mall parking lot over the past couple of years. That area was relatively safe until they installed the Metro station. The reason it's such a "great location" for those guys is they have an easy get away. Commit the crime, walk a block, hop on the metro, and head somewhere else. Game, set, match.
Did this information come from arrest reports or some other documented source?
I can see it as a possibility for car thefts. Traditionally, most of Fairfax's stolen cars are recovered in PG county and DC.

News reports.Here's an example
. I haven't had the time to look into arrest records.
Apparently, they're taking out the Mall to make a Town Center, but I don't know if that'll help or not.
From what I've read via Google, stay out of the parking garages around there.
