The neighborhood is close to everything, downtown, the airport, grocery stores, and restaurants. There sidewalks are wheelchair friendly as well as bike lanes on every major road. This is a car, bike and pedestrian friendly neighborhood.
There has been some car break-ins and theft, but few and far between. Most noticeably is the lovely walking distance to Fred Meyer, cafes, parks, and bike-friendly streets.
