Weird, unusual, and hidden parts of Washington, DC?

I've been reading Scouting NY
ever since Slap*Happy's post about Willets Point
and loving it the descriptions of bizarre landmarks, unusual neighborhoods, and hidden bits of history and culture in NYC. What are the equivalent places in Washington, DC?

I've seen this previous thread
but I'm not looking at this from the angle of a tourist seeking off-the-beaten-path attractions - I live here. (Have still filed under travel because that seems to be the best place for city-specific questions.) I'm more interested in just learning about the more surreal parts of the city - think more anti-tourism
or the things that no tourist in their right mind would go out of their way to visit. The only thing there that really occupies the same space as the Scouting NY stuff is A. Litteri and the rest of the Capital City Market/Florida Ave Market.
