"Conveniently located for Seattle Center visitors"

While there are a few apartment buildings on Thomas Street, the majority of Seattlites use this street for parking to Seattle Center events and visiting the other restaurants and businesses along this street. La Dolce Vita, an Italian restaurant, is famed for its amazing New Year's Eve dinners. The food is mouthwatering, the service is phenomenal and the wine is flowing. It's a bit pricey, but for that special occasion, it's worth it. For the after-work crowd, Buckley's Pub on Thomas Street is a great place to unwind after a long day, and their food isn't bad either. But, of course, the main attraction would be Seattle Center, the Space Needle and events at Key Arena, the Children's Museum and Intiman's Theatre. Residents of the apartments on Thomas often have to share on-street parking with visitors and tourists, though most apartment buildings have garages for residents. During the summer and Key Arena events, however, the street is usually bumper-to-bumper with cars waiting to fill the Seattle Center parking lot, making getting home more time consuming than usual. However, for living close to the city, it's a great place to live. For downtown workers, the monorail is within walking distance and provides quick access to Westlake Center.

"Seattle Center, still pulls me in everytime"

I know it's cliche, but having lived in this city, I still really love to come down and do all the tourist stuff.

I love it when they have concerts at the Key arena, or at Veteran's memorial and I get a chance to come hang out down by the Seattle Center.

You have everything down here. There's the Pacific Science Center to check out. You can't miss the Experience Music Project. Then there's always the Needle or you can just sit and chill around the fountain. If there's something going on, or a crowd that's even better. I could literally spend hours people watching down here.

If you get really bored you can take the Monorail to Westlake Center and do some shopping at Nordstrom's. It's a great way to spend the day.

The only downside is you're gonna have to pay for parking.

"nice long street"

Thomas Street in Seattle is a long street. The western side is mostly larger buildings, commercial and some residential. There are a couple of good restaurants there. On the east side the street becomes more residential and there are some very nice houses. There is also cascade park which is a nice playground with a baseball field.
