"Itty bitty tiny street, that's a few steps away from everywhere"
E. Loretta Place is only a block long. It is bounded to the west by Bellevue Ave E. and to the east by Summit Ave. E., just over half way down on Capitol Hill. It may be small, but it has a ton of stuff going on. On the corner of Summit and Loretta is a second hand clothing boutique, and across Summit is a large Starbucks. One of the largest apartment buildings on the Hill takes up most of the north side of the block, but it is a beautiful brick structure, covered in ivy, and wonderfully maintained. The street is a lovely old cobblestone. It has easy access to the #14 bus route running on Summit Ave. E. and Bellevue Ave E., as well as the #43 and the #8 running on E. Olive Way. There are several restaurants, second hand stores and small convenience stores within 2 blocks of E. Loretta Place. Noise from E. Olive Way can be intrusive for the apartments near the Summit side, but the middle and lower section are fairly well insulated. Street parking is not allowed.
