Foggy Bottom Real Estate, Washington DC

First off, “Foggy Bottom” has got to be one of the coolest names for a neighborhood, ever. This Washington, DC community tucked in between Georgetown and the Potomac River also happens to have an intriguing history as it was the chief setting for the infamous political scandal that lead to the resignation of a sitting U.S. President. Plus, there are great homes for sale here as well!

The hazy name was inspired long ago by the area’s murky appearance—toxic smoke from 18th century industrial plants would mix with fog coming off the river. The industrial waste is long gone now but the name remains, also used as a metonym for the U.S. State Department whose headquarters are nearby. There are numerous other federal offices here as well, including the office of the Vice President of the United States. Plus, the neighborhood was once home to the original OSS/CIA headquarters.
