Broadway/Capitol Hill is a very diverse area where there is little to no judgement! It has a huge bar scene and some of the best restaurants all packed into one area. Since it's so close to Amazon, Facebook, and Microsoft in the South Lake Union, you're starting to see a huge spike in rent prices and home prices making it a lot less affordable to live in this part of town.

Broadway/Capitol Hill is absolutely the most happening location in Seattle. Most young people live here, meaning most shows and events occur here as a result. There is an extremely diverse range of cuisine, shops, and parks in Capitol Hill. The environment is fun and extremely accepting. It is relatively expensive to live here as a result of gentrification.
Capitol hill is a great place to live, if you're young, social, and find an amazing deal on an apartment like I did. Food is phenomenal, and you can find most any cuisine you could want for. Traffic in the area doesn't tend to be too bad, but parking is a nightmare if your apartment building doesn't have reserved spaces. Seattle Central College is a grade A community college, and I highly recommend it, at least for STEM majors trying to get in to a 4 year university further down the line. Despite previously having a somewhat bohemian rep, cap hill is very family friendly, and aside from the odd pick pocketer, crime isn't really a problem. You don't have to worry about walking around late at night, and there is a QFC open 24/7 on Broadway.
