This is a neighborhood of tree-lined streets and brick tudor houses. There are sidewalks and curbs and houses are well kept. The noise from and proximity to 520 detracts from this otherwise idyllic neighborhood.
We noted a staircase and a path where streets dead-ended.
This area has some interesting garden art (including birdhouses at Montlake Elementary) and lots of bicyclists.
There is a small play structure on the Arboretum grounds where Lynn intersects 26 Avenue E.

It was a joy to walk down some streets and look at the beautiful gardens and parking strips.
