"Quiet neighborhood nestled between two large parks"

East Galer Street, on the east side of Lake Union, isn't a very long residential street, but has one of the most interesting 5-point-star shaped intersections in the city at the south end of Interlaken Park. The homes are relatively nice, single-family houses, and the commute into downtown Seattle takes about 10 minutes. Public transportation runs up the intersecting streets, making it convenient to leave the car at home.

The biggest draw to the area are Interlaken and Volunteer Parks that sandwich E. Galer Street between them, providing nice natural beauty to the area and lots of green. The street ends on the east side at the Broadmoor Golf Club. There's plenty of activities in the area for nature-lovers, not to mention the Seattle Asian Art Museum at the northeast corner of Volunteer Park. There are also a few schools in the immediate area, making this neighborhood a pretty good place to raise a family.

"Perfect Worker Street"

I thought this street would be perfect for the city worker. It makes for a fairly short commute and yet (in certain sections) can be surprisingly quiet quite the odd combination. I think this would be perfect for the businessman (or woman) who wants to work, have a short commute, and yet come home to peace quiet. The neighborhoods seemed fairly built up so the prices might be a little high but hey it is seattle.
