"Basically one very long alley"

Much of SODO (Seattle's industrial district SOuth of DOwntown) occurs between South 1st and 4th Avenues. That said, Utah Ave South is west of 1st Ave. so it's basically like one long alley behind the businesses, restaurants and retail shops along the main street. It is good for parking if a shop doesn't have a lot, since on-street parking on 1st Ave, while it's permissible, is for the brave, since auto traffic isn't very forgiving to pedestrians that aren't on their way to a game. There was no landscape planning when Utah Ave was built, so there are no trees, like you find along nearly every other street in this city. Even SODO, for all of it's huge warehouse, railroad and industrial buildings, has a little greenery along the streets. Not so for Utah Ave. It's basically just a back-door access road to the businesses along 1st Ave. South. And a fairly poor one, at that.
