Early this week, I walked all the streets between NE 135th and 145th Street from Jackson Park Golf course to 23rd Avenue NE. The southeast area of this neighborhood was quiet and felt almost rural with lots of birds chirping. The northern and western areas were closer to busy streets and I heard more dogs barking than birds singing. There are stores (including QFC, Goodwill and Starbucks) at the corner of 145th and 15th and lots of apartments and condos with impressive sounding names along 15th.
I met more walkers and bikers than on any walk thus far and even saw a few Metro buses . There were more sidewalks than I expected (probably because of the bus routes). I walked 7.25 miles.
