South Beacon Hill Reviews

3
I was born in Beacon Hill. For the years I have lived in Beacon Hill, nothing dramatic has happened. Well, drunk drivers tend to crash into our fence a lot. But other than that, I have not experienced too much violence. There are plenty of grocery stores all around the area. It is very convenient to live in this area. Public transportation is also easily accessed within a few blocks. The neighborhood is very diverse and interactions are mostly friendly. My neighbors have been friendly to my family and I. I would say this neighborhood is a safe place to live.

I grew up in this place and it raised me in the best way possible. Its one of the best neighborhoods in south Seattle and is a great place to raise a family and is very diverse with its people. The 98108 area code is one of the most diverse area codes in the country which just shows how its a great place for people to be and live.
It's an ok area but there's an increase in crime around the area
