Life in South Park
A front-page story in today's P-I (Section B) focuses on the South Park neighborhood. If you don't know where it is, you are not alone. It lies east of Hwy 509 and south of Roxbury (roughly speaking). It is what I call a "developing" area -- lots of good people, but not a lot of money. Public perception of the area has not been particularly positive in the past, which is a shame because it's probably undeserved. On the bright side, it has kept property values in South Park lower than other areas of the city, making it a good investment. If you are disappointed by what your money can buy in the westerly neighborhoods of West Seattle, you may want to give South Park a look.
