About the neighborhood
It is almost impossible for anyone to visit Washington DC without dropping by the neighborhood of Capitol Hill. This historic community stands in front of the United States Capitol (also know as the Capitol Building) that holds the government's legislative branch, the United States Congress. One of the oldest residential neighborhoods in DC (it is home to the Capitol Hill Historic District, one of the the largest historic districts in the US), today this neighborhood is also among the most populated. At its center is the Eastern Market Metro Rail Station, which is close to the Eastern Market, one of DC's oldest marketplaces.
