Wonderful neighborhood feel, quiet streets, 15 from downtown and 15 from Bellevue (without traffic). I can walk to way more restaurants than I can visit on a regular basis - Thai, Turkish, French, Italian, Japanese, ... - both at the top of the hill at 34th and Union and over at Madison and Lake Washington Drive. Lots of play grounds; annual block parties; and I like my neighbors. I just wish the City would pave the streets!

Good, safe, nice neighborhood. Highly expensive, and ver white upper middle class. Good for kids, Garfield (the nearby HS) is pretty good, one of the better schools in the city.
I walked my two Vizslas all through Madrona over the years, and got to know various neighbors and small business owners. It's a very nice place to live, quiet
at night, close to urban amenities.
