DC’s Northeast Quadrant, which accounts for almost a quarter of the District’s land, is enjoying a bit of a renaissance as many of its neighborhoods, such as Petworth and Brookland, are undergoing revitalization. Other popular Northeast neighborhoods in its 15 square miles include the H St Corridor, Pleasant Hill, Fort Totten, Brentwood, Ivy City, NoMa, Trinidad, Michigan Park, and Riggs Park. Many parts of what’s considered Capitol Hill lie in the Northeast Quadrant. Points of interest include the Supreme Court, Union Station, Catholic University of America, the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, Gallaudet University, and the National Arboretum. Metro’s Red, Yellow and Green lines serve the Northeast Quadrant, making a commute downtown a breeze.
