"Nice neighborhood just off of the main street"

1st Ave West parallels Queen Anne Avenue all the way up the hill and down the other side, offering residents some of the city's best restaurants and shops within walking distance. The homes and apartment buildings in the area are surrounded by big leafy trees and evergreens, and many have well tended gardens providing a splash of summer color. There are many schools on Queen Anne, making it one of the most family-friendly communities in the city. There are parks at practically every turn, including the large David-Rogers Park on 1st Ave West on the north face of Queen Anne. The area is known to be very safe, and very community-oriented. Proximity to downtown and highways is all within ten minutes, and public transportation is plentiful enough to get you there so you don't have to navigate the busy Queen Anne Avenue yourself. There are quite a few blind intersections and roundabouts on 1st Ave. West making driving a little slow-going. On-street parking also narrows this already narrow street even more. The homes are nice and well maintained, though quite close together, giving you less privacy than you may want. The area is remarkably green, quiet and the businesses in the area may keep you closer to home most of the time.
