Upper Queen Anne is a very beautiful part of Seattle - there are a lot of privileged schools and scenic parks. Houses are generally well maintained, and although pricey, would be a good area to raise a family. That being said, there is also a pretentious side to the area and it is very white. Seattle neighborhoods all have unique personalities so it is just important to find one that fits your own lifestyle! I would recommend the area to someone to check out.

North Queen Anne is quaint, safe, and family oriented. If you despise hills or narrow streets, then stay away. But the neighborhood itself is beautiful, and have all the amenities you would need. The nightlife is relatively non existent, but that could be a positive for you.

The schools are good, but "Queen Anne Moms" are not the most righteous of people. Everyone's baby is going to be the next president.

Living here is pretty expensive, but the bus lines nearby go all over the city. Ballard and Fremont are nearby as well, and both of those neighborhoods offer access to even more restaurants and nightlife.

I love Queen Anne, and what's kept me around is the quiet neighborhoods, and close proximity to Fremont and Ballard. You have the best of both world here, as you can get downtown in a 15 minute bus ride, but you have almost none of the hustle and bustle in Queen Anne.
North Queen Anne, more commonly known as Upper Queen Anne, can be a great place to live. The neighborhood feels safe late at night and has a few 24-hour stores nearby for almost all your needs. There are also some good cafe choices for coffee dates. Upper Queen Anne is also known for Kerry Park, which is one of Seattle's best look out points of downtown and the Space Needle.

The only huge downside is it feels like an island, with only a few places to get to other neighborhoods it can seem like you are driving for 2x longer than you should be.
