The Central District (the CD as it is called by locals) is one of the oldest and most diverse neighborhoods in Seattle. This is a community teaming with an eclectic mix of residents and architecture, where modern designer dwellings sit next to beautifully restored turn of the century homes. There is a long history of activism out of this neighborhood going back to the jazz period, through the civil rights and more recently with immigration rights issues. We love walking through this hood and stumbling across Ethiopian restaurants next to southern soul food spots. The Central Area is truly one of the most active and organized hoods in Seattle. The CD a perfect place for any urbanite to call home!
