This week brought me out to Upper Queen Anne on a particularly sunny, crisp autumn day. I took some time to walk through the neighborhood and enjoy the coziness this fall has dropped off. Leaf-lined sidewalks, fun Halloween displays, and the autumnal spirit made this neighborhood feel like a earlier, simpler time. Families walked along the streets, and children played in the park. It reminded me of all the good that’s very much still in the world, and I wanted to share a piece of that with all of you.
The Seattle Gym, right at the top of Queen Anne hill, is in a building that was built in 1927. Next-door, you can find a local automotive shop (MarQueen Garage) that’s been around in the 1920s, in a building that was built way back in the 1890s.
Adorable, seasonal decorations fill the neighborhood.
Some families here get very into the Halloween spirit!
I like to think that this truck has been serviced at the same 1920s MarQueen Garage all its life.
Beautiful. This walk was a lovely break from my busy day, and it left me invigorated and happy to call this city home.
Upper Queen Anne is a world apart from the bustle and chaos of the rest of Seattle. It’s a neighborhood with old brick Tudors and kids’ lemonade stands. A lovely, old-fashioned place for a family. Curious about the housing market there? Give me a call!
