"Main street at the top of Queen Anne"
Although Boston Street is pretty much THE main east-west arterial at the top of Queen Anne, it's generally a fairly quiet street that really doesn't see that much traffic. Connecting the west side Queen Anne residents to the "business district" of Queen Anne, Boston Street is one of the few that have painted lines down the center of the street. Considered quite a safe area, there are many schools in the area, some small shops and businesses, grocery stores and specialty stores for locals of the community. The houses on Boston Street, though at the very top of Queen Anne hill, don't generally enjoy outstanding views that many on the south and west faces of the hill get, but they do enjoy the same tranquility, community spirit and quiet living. The homes on Boston Street, like most on Queen Anne, are some of the more expensive when it comes to city living. Just north of the city, popping into downtown takes 5-10 minutes and a commute via public transportation doesn't take that much longer for those that live on the hill and work in the city.
