Capitol Hill: United States historic place
Capitol Hill, in addition to being a metonym for the United States Congress, is the largest historic residential neighborhood in Washington, D.C., stretching easterly in front of the United States Capitol along wide avenues. It is one of the oldest residential neighborhoods in Washington, D.C., and with roughly 35,000 people in just under 2 square miles (5 km2), it is also one of the most densely populated.


On Capitol Hill, questions about the caucus system.

Some senators say that caucuses should be abandoned. Other say change are needed. And some worry about the system’s integrity.
