"Between shopping and fun"

Seneca Street is in the heart of the business district, so there are quite a few banks, office buildings, little lunch dining establishments and Starbucks. The district sits between the shopping district, where you can find Macys, Nordstrom, Pacific Place and Westlake Center, and the fun district of Pioneer Square and old Seattle. The buildings are mostly new so they don't really offer the beautiful architecture that you see the further south you go. The nice part about the street, though, is that it sits in Metro's free ride area, so when you're done with your business, you can get travel to other parts of the city for free on the public transporation system. Aside from workers, banks and business, there really isn't much to do or see on this street.

"Downtown Finacial District Street"

Seneca Street runs from the waterfront, through downtown, all the way up to the hospitals on "Pill Hill." The street doesn't have a lot of character or charm. It cuts through the downtown area in the financial district, which means a lot of towering buildings and people dressed in business casual attire wishing they were elsewhere. Seneca Street is a place you'd only visit for business purposes.
