I have lived in Lower Queen Anne for 2 years now. Overall it is a nice place to live but like most areas, it has it's faults. The area has quite a few homeless people either camping or roaming around. I have had a few not so nice encounters but they mind their own business for the most part. Despite this problem that is prevalent in many areas of Seattle, Lower Queen Anne has nice restaurants (Pho Than Brothers, Bahn Thai, Mashawi), a variety of coffee shops, and there's MoPop, the Science Center, and of course the Space Needle in Seattle Center. If you have money to spend, you will not get bored in Lower Queen Anne.

I grew up in Queen Anne and I took it for granted as when I moved I missed it daily. Queen Anne has such a relaxing and accepting vibe, you could walk anywhere or take the bus so there was never worry about transportation. Locals were friendly, at least to each other and I had an amazingly cute old apartment building. Queen Anne is beautiful however sadly overpriced now and locals (such as myself) had to move because of it.
I grew up in Seattle, thus part of the reason I like it is because I have so many memories here, and such a solid network of family and friends. Housing prices are increasing and it's becoming more and more difficult to live in the best neighborhoods in the city, like my neighborhood, lower Queen Anne. There are certain community arts institutions that set this city apart and make it a great community for arts and music--organizations like the radio station KEXP, Frye Art Museum, and the weekly newspaper The Stranger. Seattle is becoming dangerously homogenous though, due to increasing housing prices and some large employers like Amazon and Google. Many end up living in a soul-less generic looking apartment building complete with "amenities," and full of white middle class people who work for Amazon. This will always be home though.
