Bounded to the west by the Capitol building and South and North Capitol Streets, to the south by the Southeast Freeway, to the north by H Street, NE, and to the east by 11th Street, this genteel neighborhood overlays two DC quadrants-Southeast and Northeast, more of it falling into the former.
Businesses along Pennsylvania Avenue, SE, include bars and restaurants luring a youthful, politics-obsessed crowd. There are still vintage hangouts like the fabled Tune Inn, little changed since VJ Day.
