"Winding green residential street"

East Terrace Street runs straight for a few blocks through Madrona before curving among huge leafy trees in quiet, residential neighborhoods. Traffic is minimal, since this is not a thoroughfare, but shops, schools and restaurants are close by for residents. The homes are nice single-family houses, well kept with nice yards and gardens. Being on the east side of Cherry Hill, the neighborhood is slightly protected from weather from Puget Sound, but only slightly. Lake Washington sits to the east of the neighborhood couching these homes between two very large bodies of water, though neither are suitable for swimming.

However, community centers and schools in the area, along with the many parks and playgrounds, offer more than enough family and kid-friendly entertainment and leisure activities. The nearby communities of Capitol Hill, Cherry Hill and Madrona offer local events and attractions for kids, families and adults. Capitol Hill also features some of Seattle's best restaurants, bars and nightclubs. There are many schools in the area ranging from Elementary to High School to Community Colleges and Universities. A few of Seattle's best medical centers, Swedish, Harborview and Virginia Mason, offer top-notch medical care.

Public transportation in the area to downtown Seattle give residents a break from driving and is usually plentiful on the east side of Cherry Hill and Capitol Hill. Though traffic does tend to be quite light in the area, mostly consisting of the people who live there and their visitors, since most of the main tourist attractions exist west in Seattle-proper.
