Central District

Located just south of Capitol Hill, Central District has quick access to downtown, ample street parking, and a wide variety of housing. Shops and restaurants can be found along 12th Avenue East and 23rd Avenue East, and local institutions include the Providence Medical Center, Seattle University, and the Seattle Vocational Institute.

The community is very proud of its diversity; a festival is held yearly to “strengthen community pride, integrity, and spirituality while promoting cultural diversity throughout the Central District.” Other organizations, like the Central District Forum for Arts and Ideas, devote their time to promoting the arts and culture of the African American community.

There are quite literally people from all walks of life in this neighborhood. You’ve got your thirty-somethings who work regular jobs and your retirees, your singles and your couples, and your renters and owners. Residents choose this area for its location and its affordability.
