The fact that you're listing Manhattan as a "hilly city" (or part of a city) simply proves your definition of hilly and everybody else's are simply different. And, yes, I know it gets more hilly on the northern end of Manhattan, but still a FAR cry from a hilly place and I've never heard a New Yorker ever mention the hills. I think if you moved away from here and lived in genuinely hilly city, you'd understand.

Anyway. Remains a silly argument, but at least we can find some consensus that DC has hills but is far from a hilly city.
You stated emphatically that you were not going to post again. This is now the 2nd time you have backtracked. The hat trick will not even warrant a banal response.

I'd call it... wavy. Think of one of those heartbeat monitors, but parabolic (aka gradual rather than near-instant spikes).

Honestly, the Rocky Mountains are just hills, compared to the Himalayas.

This probably should be moved to "Great Debates" or "Politics and Other Controversies"

Well, now that Vince Gray is all but elected, all of our real problems will be solved. So, that leaves us with geological undulations as the only one left!

LOL! Now that warrants a response.

Yac is right. This is all silly and I have to bring my sleds in for repair. Moth Jr will be taking advantage of the many great slopes in DC.
