"Rags to Riches"

Just eleven and a half blocks long, James St. originates near Pioneer Square, branching off of Yesler Way. Nightclubs and businesses line the street and there is a direct onramp to I-5 and I-90 off of James St. Under the freeway overpass gets a little spooky, though. Several homeless take up residence there to be close to the Northwest Harvest food bank on 7th & Cherry. One of Seattle's original streets, it wouldn't really be described as lush, though there are some leafy trees lining the street on the east side of the freeway. Lack of parking and traffic congestion make it a less-than-desirable street to live on, though the nightlife action is plentiful.
