About Capitol Hill

Capitol Hill is one of the oldest and most historic neighborhoods in America. While we do have more politicians (and dry cleaners) than most areas, there is way more going on here than national politics. The neighborhood has changed rapidly over the last 15 years, resulting in an incredibly vibrant and diverse place to spend some time.

Located between the Capitol Building the the west and the Anacostia River to the east, Capitol Hill consists of multiple business districts. The main areas Pennsylvania Ave, Eastern Market, and Barracks Row (where MWC is located). Other great places to spend some time close by include H Street NE, the Navy Yard/Capitol Riverfront, and the brand new Wharf District.
