Hillyer Court is an alleyway courtyard with two entrances from 21st Street and from Florida Avenue. The courtyard is bound by Florida Avenue, Massachusetts Avenue, R Street, 21st Street, and Q Street. Our building within Hillyer Court is located directly behind the Cosmos Club and the Phillips Collection; it is a two-floor grayish-blue brick building.
Why: Because those roller derby chicks will kick our ass (or arm) if we don't.
