It is a beautiful neighborhood, but it is very hard to get to by metro. Also, it has a small retail area, but it could be bigger. However, for nature lovers, this is the perfect paradise.

Seward park is a very nice area with a scenic view of lake Washington. The houses are very well kept and everyone is very friendly around that area. I remember going to Seward park to swim and hang with friends a lot during the summer. I do wish that it was a little bit safer at night. There has been reports of robberies and assault in that area when it does get dark.
There are definitely crimes that occur in this neighborhood and it has a history of some gang violence. However, it is my personal observation that it is getting better. I think this is part to the gentrification.
