"Nice street, busy during rush hour!"
Palatine Avenue North is just a block west of Greenwood Avenue, a major commuting corridor that is the furthest west of all major arterials in North Seattle. Palatine Avenue doesn't have any sidewalks, but most of the time cars drive slowly. During the rush hour in the afternoon, however, traffic increases greatly as cars look for alternatives to traffic-clogged Greenwood Avenue, so it pays to be a little more careful then. Palatine is a residential street, with no businesses or sidewalks, so it makes for a nice walk when traffic is light.
