"Small town feel near the big city"

Local businesses and apartment buildings give this neighborhood a community feeling. From the local grocery store, banks and restaurants, it's like a little city within a city. There's even a small movie theatre in the vicinity, as well as a huge events center (Seattle Center), giving residents and tourists plenty to do and see. There is, of course, a Starbucks close by, but almost just as popular, Dick's can be found on the corner of Queen Anne Ave and W. Republican, providing the only one in the Seattle area with an indoor dining area. This little section of Seattle does sleep, but its bedtime is pretty late and traffic can sometimes deter potential visitors to the area. Overall, it's a great place to live for those who like the convenience of city living without the overwhelming feel of living in the city.

"Small but Full of Good Stuff"

West Republican Street is less than ten blocks long, but it’s one of the busiest streets in the Lower Queen Anne area. For starters, it has the only Dick’s with indoor seating, which means it’s totally mobbed before events at Key Arena. The area’s only post office is on Republican as well, and the lines there always seem to be pretty short. There used to be a QFC here, but now it’s a car dealership. The west part of the street is great for parking for Seattle Center. There aren’t any signs telling you how long you can park and no meters. Amazing.
