Street lighting is pretty good in Maple Leaf, although it could be a bit better. Most houses in the neighborhood are families or older folks, so not much in the way of trouble. The police aren't too present, but then again it's a pretty peaceful spot.

People here (especially around Greenlake) take exercise and fitness very seriously, there are frequent runners, bikers, and people walking. There are also several yoga, cross-fit, and weight loss establishments. Overall a healthy lifestyle is highly encouraged and is made easy to obtain.
Small building lots, but it is more economic than cramped. Very efficient use of space, and everything still feels great and nice. People spend time outdoors and you don't need a lot of living space because of that.
