What about Capitol Hill? Should be in the top 5.

Just checked on the mqVibe site linked in this post, and Capitol Hill is listed at number 19. Lots of people would disagree with that, I'll bet. Thanks for the post.

MapQuest kinda spikes its own credibility right off the bat by listing "Highland" as a neighborhood. It is not; there are several distinct, officially different neighborhoods comprising "The Highlands," including West Highlands; Potter-Highlands; Lower Highlands (pictured in this piece) and even Berkeley and Sunnyside to a certain extent.
