Every decent neighborhood needs three things: a good school, a mailman that barks back when dogs say hello, and a good hardware store. Frager's Hardware has served as the last of those on Capitol Hill since 1920, when Russian immigrant Fritz "Frank" Frager opened it after getting laid off from his job as a cabinetmaker at the Navy Yard.
Frager's Lawn & Garden Center has helped their neighbors' outdoor foliage thrive as well, providing sound advice for year-round garden maintenance.

Amicus Green Building Center brings an eco-friendly approach to the building process with its inventory of green and sustainable materials. Each product in the store undergoes extensive review to determine its potential energy savings, environmental integrity, and ability to intimidate smog that shows up unannounced to dinner parties. New initiates into the world of healthy eco-living may wish to start with a safety test kit ($10.95 each) to discover just how much asbestos, lead dust, or radon lurks in the shadowy recesses of their home. Said shadows can be banished with the efficient lighting of compact fluorescent light bulbs ($5.19 each for small bulbs), which offer long life and warm light quality, or light-emitting diodes ($60.40 each for recessed bulbs) that pack an average 40,000 hours, or approximately 80,000 equally illuminating episodes of Frasier, of light.
