"typical residential street with some local color"

I rented a studio for about 700 on washinton street in a converted house.

I liked living on this street. I was between 6th and 7th so I wasn't very far from the light rail on 1st, which was good because busses didnt really come through the neighborhood. However, it didnt really matter because I was so close to downtown and most things were pretty walkable.

The grocery store was a mexican market, I dont remember the name. I didnt have much of a problem with that except the selection wasnt the same as the safeway. The other grocery stores were in Japantown, which was another good part about living in this area. Not that there was anything really interesting in Japantown all of the time, but they did have the karaoke bar that was fun. Except it was 1.00 a song...which sucks.

While I lived there, there were definitely some boarded up houses and people who would just sit outside drinking beer. I personally didnt mind that. I was never bothered by any of my neighbors so it wasnt a big deal. The train tracks are kind of close, but they werent close enough that they would be an issue.
