Living in Yesler Terrace since I was so ever young, I have experience the changes and improvements of the architecture. It feels as if society is developing into our modern era. The population is increasing there is more rooms, there is a community center open to all. Yesler is becoming more safer for all, there has been and increase in security. I think the future Yesler Terrace will be a better place to live for all low income families.

It's pretty good. I have been around and know most of the children there. They're mostly friendly. I used to ride my bike around the place and I seen recognize faces.
This area is very hip and happening. There is more work to do, however there is a lot of potential.
