Northern Roosevelt and Ravenna

Today, my husband and I returned to Roosevelt and Ravenna. We walked 3.7 miles along the streets between Lake City Way and Ravenna Avenues NE from NE 77th to 82nd Street.

There are some truly lovely streets in this neighborhood with charming brick tudor homes and well kept gardens.

It looks as if many trees have recently been planted along the curbs and they are protected and watered through green bags zippered around the bases. A few trees were tagged as being maintained by SDOT.

This area is home to Faith Lutheran Church.

The streets along and just off Lake City Way are commercial with the Little Gym, a salon, a design store, a coffee shop, a cleaners, some fast food shops, the Last Drop (a craft beer store) and the Hudson Public House and Cooper's Pubs.

It is always surprising to find such a lovely neighborhood near a busy street.
