My daughter and I have loved living here. Her middle and high school years were great and we were always met with helpfulness and kindness. We have been here 8 years (coming from NYC!). There has always been lots to do, parks to visit, close-by grocery shopping, neighbors and dogs to greet us. I really don't think there is a median age as people range from infancy to age 100. That's what makes this area so wonderful. It has gotten crowded over the years and traffic can be a hindrance. But we deal with it. You must be patient!

I really like this neighborhood. Everyone is very polite and nice to each other, and I know quite a few people in this neighborhood who work in the same hospital as I do. Everyone who I have talked with who has lived here for an even longer time than myself all love the area. People are very pet-friendly, and families are common. The neighborhood has a lot of college students, but most of them are very respectful and studious. It's been great living here! The only problem I have is the cost -- while it's affordable for people who work full-time, it's hard for people like myself and my wife to afford a nice home. Apartments are slightly pricey in the area, but you get a lot of bang for your buck compared to other desirable communities (like Capitol Hill or South Lake Union).
Wedgwood is a great neighborhood to live in. It is close to the interstate, and in a convenient location to get many places around Seattle. If you like to stay in the neighborhood, there is everything you need. Library, grocery stores, pharmacy, parks, restaurants, coffee shops, banks and more are all located in Wedgwood.
