Welcome to the Northeast District!
The NE District is a collection of over 17 distinct neighborhoods represented by their own community council, club, business organization or other association. The University of Washington (the City’s largest employer) is located in a southern neighborhood of this district. Magnuson Park, the 350 acre former Naval Air Station, is located on the east edge of this District. And, in between are a multitude of neighborhoods, parks, institutions and business districts. The balance of the District is largely single-family residential. Boundaries for NE are, roughly, I-5 on the west, Lake City Way on the north, Lake Washington on the east and SR520 on the south.
The University District, a dense urban center, bordering the Montlake cut in the south end of the District, is a unique collection of the broadly diverse students who make up most of the residents of this neighborhood; stately architecturally significant single family homes; small restaurants featuring inexpensive and delectable dishes from every continent; entertainment – movies, theater, improve and unique schools – (University Heights houses 7 schools) and the University of Washington – one of the nations’ top research institutions.
Some of the City’s true treasures are tucked away in unlikely corners of the NE District – the Wedgwood Rock, Ravenna Park, the original P-Patch (Picardo), the University District Farmer’s Market (biggest organic farmer only market in the State), the first public Bocce Ball court, Peak’s Frozen Custard (first frozen custard establishment in the state) – just to name a few.
