Why not just ~どこですか?

Either would be fine in an actual conversation. どこにありますか sounds a bit more polite, kind of like saying "Where is [x] located?" rather than just "Where is [x]?"

In informal sprach/everyday Japanese, 原宿駅はどこis largely used. Yet it was graded wrong by duolingo. I must say I am really confused by the inconsistencies in politeness most of the times. While still asking for the full verb at the end, they don't use a lot of onorifics that became standard language...

Generally people don't say 秋葉原の駅 they say 秋葉原駅 and this should be correct. Now, I'm not Japanese, but I am N1, and I did spend 10 years in Japan, and I did go to Akihabara a LOT for work, so I'm pretty confident about this.

This is the thread for "Harajuku" not "Akihabara", so I think that might be what's going on here.
