NE Washington DC (also known as Northeast DC) is located north of East Capitol Street and east of North Capitol Street. This part of the city includes part of Capitol Hill but is mostly residential and is known to have a high crime rate relative to the rest of the city. Neighborhoods in NE include Brentwood, Brookland, Ivy City, Marshall Heights, Pleasant Hill, Stanton Park, Trinidad, Michigan Park, Riggs Park, Fort Totten, Fort Lincoln, Edgewood, Deanwood, and Kenilworth. The population of Northeast is predominantly African-American, particularly east of the Anacostia River.

NE Washington DC is also home to Union Station and the rapidly developing NoMa (North of Massachusetts Avenue) neighborhood which is undergoing a redevelopment with plans to include a $3 billion expansion of office, residential, hotel, and retail space in a 35-block area over the next 10 years. Other major landmarks in Northeast include the Smithsonian National Postal Museum, Catholic University of America, Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, the Pope John Paul II Cultural Center, Anacostia Park, the National Arboretum and Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens.
