I've lived in Eastlake for 30 years and while the area has evolved it's maintained a great community feel. Tops K-8 school is great and the neighborhood community council is active. The best part, we're so close to downtown...my commute to work is <2 miles.
Very pleasant and walkable, beautiful views of the bridge, the Space Needle, the lake and sailboats. Parking can be difficult, but I don't own a car, so it's not an issue for me.
I think this area is very pedestrian friendly, because it has plenty of sidewalks and bus routes for people to use. However, I think this area could use bike lanes. People who commute on bikes have very little options in this part of town. They usually drive in the right lane which upsets the flow of traffic. Some people will take the resident back streets which is becoming more problematic as these streets are one lane and the drivers using them have to wait for the bicyclists to pass through most of the time.
