Readers Debate: Is Cap Hill Beautiful — or Does it Deserve to Be Called Crap Hill?

In a recent post, we noted that Thrillist had chosen Capitol Hill as one of America's ten most beautiful neighborhoods.

Plenty of readers agreed with this designation.

However, a surprising number of them had negative things to say about the area.

Here are a selection of responses representing both points of view.

I lived in Capital Hill for 30 years...well deserved!!!! The homes are beautiful and eclectic!!!! The vibe lively and diverse.... Just saying...I loved it!!!

David Jim writes:

Not sure if Cap Hill deserves to be on the list. Only scattered fractions are nice and unique, not the entire neighborhood as a whole. Some parts are trashy and def. not well kept.

Lyn Wheaton writes:

Yes! Finally we get some recognition here in Cap Hill, (for something good.) I love it!

Lisa Ray writes:

Yes, the bums and trash everywhere really deserve an award.
