"One of the best streets in Seattle"

The street is very short, but Harvard Avenue E has a lot to offer its travelers. Primarily set in a residential neighborhood with lots of apartment buildings, Harvard Avenue E is a clean and safe street with a great traffic rating. Harvard Avenue is in the heart of Capitol Hill which makes it an even more desirable place to live and drive. Around the 900 block of Harvard Avenue E is one of my favorite residences in all of Seattle, Merrill Court. This place is beautiful but it will cost you well over 2 million for a 7,000 square foot condo.

"Quiet, well-kept, diverse, and only a block away from the action"

Harvard Ave. E. on Capitol Hill, one block west of Broadway, the main thoroughfare for the Hill. It is only 5 blocks long, bounded to the south by E. Olive Way, and the north by E. Roy Street. It is largely residential, and almost completely apartment buildings and condos, with only a few single-family houses. At Harvard and Republican, you'll find on one corner, the Capitol Hill branch of the Seattle Public Library, and right across the street, the back entrance to a 3 level QFC (grocery store). There is a dry cleaners at the corner of Harvard and Olive, but all the rest is residential. Even though it is so close to Broadway, it manages to stay rather quiet. Broadway itself has a post office, several banks, small boutiques, and a dozen or so restaurants, all only a block away from Harvard. Several bus lines go by both on Olive and on Broadway, so public transportation is easy. Street parking is limited however. People are generally friendly, and the streets and sidewalks stay tidy. Lots of trees and gardens make it very beautiful.
