"The gateway to Capitol Hill"

10th Ave E connects Capitol Hill to Eastlake and the U District, running through both commercial and residential areas between Roanoke in the north and Broadway (at Roy). There are some gorgeous high-rent homes with walls and gates and amazing views, as well as some more affordable middle-class houses - mostly on the east side of the street. Beautiful institutions, such as the main campus of Cornish College for the Arts, and St. Mark's Episcopal Cathedral, dominate the west side of the street. So even the homes that don't have a view aren't stuck looking out at ugly brick walls.

It's a great street to walk or bike up and down. Just be ready for a bit of a workout going up the hill! And some great hole-in-the-wall Italian restaurants are planted up near Roanoke. Of course the cultural explosion of Broadway lies just to the south.

Access to Downtown or to I-5 or to the eastside via 520 all are fairly easy. There's usually some car traffic along the street, but the road noise isn't distracting. All things considered, a very convenient and rather beautiful neighborhood!

"Busy but a nice, convenient place to live"

There are any number of apartment buildings located along 10th Ave E. The section running from Broadway to Roanoke is a bit busy, but still nice enough. Plus, the north end features some bars and restaurants and easy access to the freeway. St. Mark's Cathedral is a beautiful church about midway along. The section on the top of Capital Hill is quiet and offers some lovely typical Capital Hill residences. It ends at the reservoir, a nice park.
