Twitter user @Astro_Soichi is a Japanese astronaut who takes amazing pictures of cities from 200 miles above the Earth’s surface while he orbits on board the International Space Station. He has photographed Washington at least two times.
That latter picture is such a good angle and so clear, I thought it would be fun to label it and make it a map of city neighborhoods.
Locals will probably already know this stuff, but maybe out-of-towners will find it interesting.

I’m going to add this to the list of features at upper right, because why not.
