"Close to the city in a very green neighborhood"
East Howe Street runs from I-5 for three blocks, picks up for a block on the other side of Lake View Cemetary, and includes a residential section north of Interlaken Park. All of the sections of this street are very green and mostly peaceful, though there are some areas close to the interstate that get some of the traffic noise those further east don't have to suffer with. There are three huge parks in the area, Interlake Park, Volunteer Park and the Washington Park Arboretum, that provide excellent areas for kids and adults. Broadmoor Golf Club sits just east of the arboretum. Housing costs can be a little high for the homes on this little hill, and commuter traffic during morning and afternoon rush hours can get a little congested. The area is a nice place to live, right between Lake Union and Lake Washington. It's safe, clean, quiet and very green. A terrific place to raise a family and get away from the city, but keep it close by.
