"Probably the least desireable neighborhood of the area"

Carleton Ave. South is part of a 4-block residential area in the middle of the Georgetown industrial district. The neighborhoods are very green and lush, with flower gardens planted in most front yards providing some summer color. This little residential area offers the Georgetown Playground a few blocks to the north, with a soccer field and large play area for kids, the Georgetown campus of South Seattle Community College and the Department of Transportation to the west and Boeing Field directly to the east. A drive to downtown Seattle takes only ten minutes, and access to local and interstate highways is only a few blocks away. Traffic is minimal, though Carleton Ave. South is probably the least desireable street in this quaint residential area. The street is about twice as wide as the surrounding streets, making the trees and flowers so far apart, it makes the street feel almost dry and desolate. Carleton Ave. S. houses the majority of the apartment complexes in the area, detracting from the cute single-family homes that also line the street. Most of them, however, are so overgrown, at least one looks like the plants have cut off access to the front door! If you're looking to live in this area, there are better streets within a block of Carleton. The nice thing about the street is the roundabouts, which also have trees and flowers planted in them giving more natural beauty to the area.
