Capitol Hill

Capitol Hill is the largest and oldest residential community in Washington; and, with roughly 35,000 people in just under two square miles, it is also one of the most densely populated. Capitol Hill stretches east, north and south beginning at the United States Capitol. The Capitol Hill neighborhood occupies two quadrants of the city _ Southeast and Northeast _ and a large portion is now designated as the Capitol Hill historic district. The name Capitol Hill is often used to refer to both the historic district and to the larger neighborhood around it. To the east of Capitol Hill lies the Anacostia River, to the north is the H Street corridor, to the south are the Southeast/Southwest Freeway and the Washington Navy Yard, and to the west are the National Mall and the cityÍs central business district.

Capitol HillÍs landmarks include the United States Capitol, the Senate and House office buildings, the Supreme Court building, the Library of Congress, the Marine Barracks, the Washington Navy Yard, and Congressional Cemetery. It is, however, largely a residential neighborhood comprised predominantly of rowhouses of different stylistic varieties and periods. The main commercial districts of Capitol Hill lie along Pennsylvania Avenue in the SE and Massachusetts Avenue in the NE, as well as the ever-popular Eastern Market (7th Street SE) where vendors sell fresh meat and produce both indoors and out along with an outdoor flea market every weekend, and Barracks Row (8th Street SE), so called because of its proximity to the U.S. Marine Barracks. The zip codes of Capitol Hill are 20002 (NE) and 20003 (SE).
