Neighborhoods Foggy Bottom &Georgetown
Between the White House and Georgetown lies Foggy Bottom, named for the fog
that rose off of the Potomac. The neighborhood is a mixture of residences, office buildings
(like IMF and World Bank), restaurants and hotels. The George Washington University,
the infamous Watergate complex and the John. F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts,
one of the nation's premier performing arts institutions and home to the acclaimed National
Symphony Orchestra, are all located in this section of town.
