EXPLORING CAPITOL HILL
A Washington, D.C. Neighborhood
Capitol Hill is the chic new neighborhood you've always dreamt of calling home.
Besides Georgetown, there is no neighborhood with more notoriety or prestige in the District of Columbia than Capitol Hill, or “The Hill,” as it is just as commonly referred to in Washington. The neighborhood takes its name from the United States Capitol and the hill that the building sits upon. The US Capitol is considered one of the most iconic symbols of America with the likes of the American flag, Statue of Liberty, and the White House. In addition to the Capitol Dome, the United States Supreme Court and the Library of Congress can also be found within this neighborhood’s boundaries.
Capitol Hill’s boundaries are loosely defined as F St NE to the north, Southeast Blvd SE to the south, First St SW to the west, and 14th St SE to the east. The neighborhood is serviced by two Blue/Orange Line WMATA Metro Stations; Eastern Market Metro (Pennsylvania Ave SE) and Capitol South Metro (First St SE). Several bus routes run full service through Capitol Hill in addition to the DC Circulator bus. Capitol Hill boasts an extremely high walk score of 93 (out of 100,) making this affluent neighborhood a walkers paradise.
Like much of southern DC, The Hill has a housing stock that is comprised mainly of condominiums, Victorian and federal-style rowhomes, single-family homes, and apartments. The housing market is highly competitive here, and most homes sell over list price due to high demand and the desire to be in the epicenter of Washington DC power and influence. As a result, it should come as no surprise that The Hill is home to a substantial number of Congresspersons, Senators, Hill and Whitehouse staffers, lobbyists, and politicos.
It doesn’t matter where you hail from, what language you speak, your socioeconomic status, or family size; there is a place in Capitol Hill for everyone. Home to the power players of Washington, postgrads from the likes of Georgetown and American Universities, young professionals starting their careers, and members of Congress, The Hill has all the best that DC has to offer anyone wishing to call it home.
What do locals love?
The Hill is also home to Eastern Market, which serves as the hub of the community in this powerful destination. The market offers deli products, baked goods, florals, butchered meats, crafts, art, and antiques. Surrounding Eastern Market, numerous restaurants, bars, and grocers can be found. Some of The Hill’s more noteworthy dining spots are: Home of the Commandants, Hawk ‘N’ Dove, Rose’s Luxury, Pineapples and Pearls, Little Pearl, and Belga Café (order the mussels, trust me.) With a seemingly endless variety of places to wine and dine, you would never need to venture out of this neighborhood that has it all. However, nearby Waterfront SW, the H St corridor, and Chinatown offer even more options, and all are metro, walk, roll or bike accessible. Capitol Hill is also a literal food paradise and is serviced by several grocers, including Harris Teeter, Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, and Capitol Hill Supermarket, to name a few.
