Phinney is a busy street that borders on the zoo (and its water tower); Market Street is busy too. 3rd Avenue NW was not busy at this time of day (late morning). The rest of the streets are residential with lovely older homes and, here and there, a newer home that fits in well.
I saw well-loved parking strips, palm trees, yard art and stairways.
This neighborhood is home to the Norse Home (and its decorated bus shelter),
and quite a few triangular plots.
Views of the Olympics kept popping up and, even though rain threatened, this was another great walk in another Seattle neighborhood with personality.
