I'm Vira Sisolak. I live on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. We're immediately east of the capital out to the Anacostia River. I first moved to this neighborhood in 1967 and a couple years later moved away, but moved back permanently in 1974. We live in a historic district. Most of the houses were built between 1860 and 1910. They're row houses and they're generally brick. I'm president of the Capitol Hill Garden Club. We have over a 100 members.

The focal point of this neighborhood is Eastern Market. And around the market, there are many things that occur. One of the things is that the garden club sells bulbs there every fall. We try to keep Capitol Hill as a unique neighborhood, even though we're very close to the capital and not far from downtown. People here feel that's it's a neighborhood that belongs to those of us who live here and as such, we try to maintain relationships with the people who own the stores and the restaurants.
