NVC (Nisei Veteran's Committee) Memorial Hall,
Pacific Rim Center, Viet Wah (Vietnamese Supermarket), MC Machinery, ICHS (International Community Health Services), 7 Point Studios and Central Bark (dog boarding). The area abuts Yesler Terrace (pictured in a prior post).

Bailey Gatzert Elementary School
