Northgate's Thornton Place is really starting to take shape as a new urban village; an enjoyable spot to get coffee, lunch or just take a walk along Thornton Creek. The new Regal Cinema opened in May with a charity event and low priced movies for the first week.   The next business planning to op...
I saw one of my favorite performers, at one of my favorite venues last night: Michael Sicoly at the Triple Door  - it was a fantastic evening! The first time I met Michael was in Whistler at the Chateau.  I was skiing with a group of friends that knew Michael and they took me out for a fun night ...
Driving North on I-5, just before the Northeast 145th Avenue exit, you see a big green space.  That's Jackson Park golf course.  It is also a small neighborhood located north of NE 125th and Roosevelt, east of I-5 (and 5thNE), south of NE 145th and west of  15th NE.   The 160 acre Jackson Park go...
This neighborhood is near and dear to my heart because as a teenager, I walked up and down the hills delivering the Lake City Journal Newspaper to the residents. The Olympic Hills neighborhood has peaks and valleys surrounding a steeper slope north to south and is located east of 15th Avenue NE, ...
As I was recently jogging around Green Lake in the last couple of weeks, I've noticed the work being done around the inner jogging trail and the new benches installed.  Then I noticed the beginnings of a new arch and trail leading to the eastside pool area.  I always like to know what's going on ...
Where is it:   Like all Seattle neighborhoods, Wedgwood has no official agreed-upon borders.  The unofficial boundaries are:  North - NE 95th Street; East - 45th Avenue NE; South - NE 75th Street; and West - by a route coming north from NE 75th Street along 25th Avenue NE, then jogging west along...
Another north Seattle neighborhood not well known is Pinehurst.  Determined by the very active Pinehurst Community Council the boundaries are NE 130th Street to the north, NE Northgate Way to the south, I-5 to the west, and Lake City Way to the east.    Geographically, the eastern area slopes eas...
Okay, I didn't even know about this neighborhood before I became a Realtor. Cedar Park is a hill rolling up from Lake City Way (west) down to Lake Washington (east).  The southern boundary is NE 125th and the northern boundary is NE 145th.  The steep hills and very little traffic toward the lake ...
Broadview is a quiet residential neighborhood, tucked away in Seattle's northwest corner and many locals have never heard of it, even though it is an easy commute to downtown.  It is one of my favorite neighborhoods as I find it very charming.  On the western edge of Broadview is a bluff, overlo...
Wow!  Lots of progress since my last update.   Thornton Place is really a breath-taking, beautiful 5 acre village with walkways meandering through green spaces and across the exposed Thornton Creek.  The creek has been under cover for over 40 years and the developer, Lorig, worked with the City t...
