Capitol View residents are trying to do a lot. The neighborhood and the neighborhoods around Capitol View are not rotten, so much as they have a few bad houses. For instance, we have a Section 8 house at 730 Dill Ave. The grandma is known to be a crack dealer. The neighborhood knows this. The police know it, the landlord, who owns about 5 or more houses in the neighborhood, knows it. They are out every evening smoking pot in their yard. The family has moved around to 4-5 different houses in the neighborhood, trashing each house until they get kicked out. They have been doing such a great job that now they welcome everyone when they enter Capitol View on Dill Avenue.
