Each week, WAMU 88.5's Metro Connection reaches across D.C., Maryland and Virginia to gather the sounds and stories that capture the current events, culture and personalities driving the Washington region.
From a highway running through the core of the neighborhood to a proposed "East Mall," the Capitol Hill Restoration Society has spent 60 years years fighting to preserve the uniquely historic nature of the Capitol Hill community.
It's been over a decade since residents of the Hill East neighborhood were promised that the 67-acre plot of land known as Reservation 13 would be developed into a mixed-use neighborhood. Why hasn't that happened?
