View of Wisconsin Ave. looking north from Elm St.

Notice how the buildings in the distance are taller. This appears to be a hotel district. The pedestrians are waiting for a "Walk" light. The "Walk" light is automatic and is usually the first phase of a green light. There are only a few seconds to start walking and it is necessary to walk quickly before the light changes. Drivers tend to respect pedestrians using the "Walk" light and pedestrains usually move only on the "Walk" light.
