"One of the least desirable places to live"

Georgetown, in the industrial district of Seattle, is mainly home to machine shops, sign shops and industrial warehouses. You can find a few homes, but they're mostly overgrown, not well maintained and probably some of the least desireable places to live in Seattle. Orcas Street, in Georgetown, offers very little in terms of shopping or dining, though they do have the Marco Polo bar and grill on the corner of 4th and Orcas. This mostly residential neighborhood is overgrown and falling apart, at least by appearances. The proximity to downtown would be nice, if it wasn't for the major industrial neighbors. For what you get, home prices seem to be on the expensive side, though they're lower than others of equal distance to the north, west and east. Not a place you'd want to necessarily go walking around at night, but with only a single bar/grill establishment, you can probably find much more appealing places to go.
