"Quiet, family oriented neighborhood"

The neighborhood that surrounds 45th Avenue S, is the ideal place to raise a family. One of the best elementary schools is located here and continues to draw younger families to the area. There is a lot of greenery and trees in this older region of Seattle, but even though it is older it is upkept. You won't find trash and bums lying around the street or office buildings, just trees, well groomed green areas, and some open space. Homes along the street are very reasonably priced which is why you find a lot of young families affording the cost of living here in the area. House prices do vary and there are a few half million dollar homes scattered throughout the two hundred thousand dollar homes. This is a neighborhood that is here to stay.

"Where we've raised a family...."

When my daughter and I moved to 45th Avenue South in the late 70s, we were surrounded by long-established families in homes that had been occupied by those families for generations. Since then my family has watched the neighborhood change as the old families moved out and the houses have turned over two or three times. Still, the neighborhood retains its youth as a result of Whitworth Elementary School being allowed to remain open in the midst of all the school closings. As long as we have kids moving through each day, I'm confident the neighborhood will stay young!
