Georgetown is a neighborhood located in the Northwest quadrant of Washington, D.C., along the Potomac River waterfront. It was formerly a separate city, predating the establishment of the city of Washington and the District of Columbia. The primary commercial corridors of Georgetown are M Street NW and Wisconsin Avenue, which are popular for the high-end shops, bars, and restaurants. Georgetown is home to the main campus of Georgetown University.
Many leading figures in politics, media, and commerce reside in this upper-bracket community.
High-end developments and gentrification have revitalized Georgetown's formerly blighted industrial waterfront. The District's old refuse incinerator and smokestack, preserved for years as an abandoned but historic landmark, was redeveloped in 2003 to become the most pronounced feature of a new Ritz-Carlton Hotel. The Whitehurst Freeway has been proposed for demolition.
Georgetown is bounded by the Potomac River on the south, Rock Creek to the east, Burleith and Glover Park to the north, with Georgetown University on the west end of the neighborhood. The neighborhood is situated on bluffs overlooking the Potomac River. As a result, there are some rather steep grades on streets running north-south.
