The Capitol Hill Neighborhood

The historic Capitol Hill neighborhood is quiet, peaceful, and safe.  The US Supreme Court is across the street.  The two adjacent blocks hold the Library of Congress and the Folger Shakespeare Library.  The Capitol is one block away.  Beyond the Capitol are the US Botanic Garden and the National Gallery of Art, with the Mall, Smithsonian galleries, and monuments beyond.  Here is a map showing the location of the condo at 11 2nd Street, NE, Washington, DC.

There are many public transportation options nearby.  There are two Metro stops and many bus lines within a few blocks of the condo.  It is an easy 3 block walk to Capitol South, serving the Blue and Orange Lines, and five blocks to Union Station, serving the Red Line.  There are small grocery stores, coffee shops, bakeries, cafes, restaurants, banks, and cleaners.  The historic Eastern Market farmers market is only a few blocks away.  Yoga, running trails, great bike paths into other parts of the city, recreational sports on the Mall, free concerts and lectures, the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop, and more are within walking distance.

The building’s entrance is across the street from the Supreme Court’s security kiosk, within the security boundaries of the US Capitol police.  You can walk up or take the elevator to this 3rd-floor unit.  Large windows overlook the quiet space in the back of the building.

This cozy apartment offers:

  • a fireplace
  • hardwood floors
  • high ceilings
  • eastern light in the living room, and northern light throughout
  • a small kitchen, with a second layer of high cabinets for additional storage (not shown in photos)
  • high-speed internet  / wifi

The bedroom is small, 6′ x 9′, with space for a full-size bed, night-stand, and a small dresser.  A queen-size bed fits with a very small night-stand.  The dresser in the photograph is 28″ wide.  With the current bed, a dresser up to 33-34″ wide would fit as well.  There is one large closet in the hallway (80″ wide), plus a linen closet (19-1/2″ wide x 23″ deep), and a full bathroom with a tub.
