Foggy Bottom is one of Washington, D.C.'s oldest 19th century neighborhoods, thought to have been named because, as a low-lying area, fog (widespread in the swamps of early Washington) tended to concentrate there. Ironically, this setting was the original location for The United States Naval Observatory.)
