It has lots of staircases, a Dunn Lumber store and a few warehouses.
It is home to North Passage Park,
some enthusiastic gardeners, the Gasworks Gallery and art studios,
the Wallingford Bible Fellowship,
the Poem Bench (on Eastern Avenue just north of 40th) where you can sit and read the poetry or quotes provided in rain-proof bins,
some interesting artwork,
a few more tree swings
and the University Receiving Substation which is across Northlake Way from
Ivar's Salmon House (which has a nice deck overlooking the water).
This area just west of I-5 is a real mix of industrial and residential with newer condos near the lake and older homes to the north. It has a friendly, unpretentious feel.
