"Quiet and somewhat removed from Capitol Hill, a great place to live."

Jam-packed with apartment dwellers, Summit is a great little street that houses just the barest of essentials. Along the street, the highlights are Top Pot, maker of fantastic doughnuts and coffee, as well as Sun Liquor, a very fabulous neighborhood bar with a cool Asian-themed atmosphere. Also, the street hosts a very un-Seattle-like bodega close to Top Pot. The further away you get from the madness on the Hill, the nicer the street gets, ending close to Cornish College of the Arts, where on a nice day you can hear students playing piano from the open windows of the college. Great atmosphere!

"Don't like driving through this area, dont' like it at all"

Never thought I'd say this about this area but Don't Drive through this place. It's hell and a headache waiting to happen. I say that because the day that I drove through the are the traffic was bad , it was raining and when I asked someone for directions they not only gave me the wrong directions but they spit on the ground and hit the side of my car. It was a rental car and I'm a germaphobe so..... Yea. I'm a bit aggrivated at this point.
