The people who live and work on "the Hill" do so in the shadow of the edifice that lends the neighborhood its name: the gleaming white Capitol. This is where political deals and decisions are made. Beyond these grand buildings lies a vibrant and diverse group of neighborhoods with charming residential blocks lined with Victorian row houses and a fine assortment of restaurants and bars where senators, members of Congress, and lobbyists come to unwind or to continue their deal making. D.C.'s favorite market and newest sporting attraction are also here. A little farther afield, the rapidly developing H Street Corridor to the north and east offers hip and edgy shopping, dining, and nightlife.
