GET TO KNOW Roanoke
One might call Roanoke the northernmost tip of central Seattle. As it is just south of the University District and nestled between Eastlake, Montlake or North Capitol Hill. Depending on whom you ask, Roanoke might be considered part of any one of these adjacent neighborhoods. As the nexus between them, it has its own character. Because it is also at the corner of I-5 and 520. It attracts families and couples who want to easily explore other parts of town, and who commute north or east for work. Singles who want a lively atmosphere should probably look elsewhere. The Burke-Gilman trail is also nearby for those wanting a nice bike ride or cultural outing can get one without a car. Aside from some road noise from the highways, Roanoke is a quiet corner of the city to enjoy.
