What can we say?
'''Lake City''' was annexed by the City of Seattle in [[1954]]. There is some confusion over the borders, but it is generally accepted that the "Lake City Area" or "Northeast District" is everything east of 15th Avenue NE, north of 95th, west of [[Lake Washington]], and south of 145th. The Lake City Area / Northeast District contains the following neighborhoods: [[Olympic Hills]], [[Cedar Park]], [[Victory Heights]], [[Meadowbrook]], and [[Matthews Beach]].
 
   
The area roughly within the boundary of 28th Ave NE, NE 130th street, 35th Ave NE, and NE 120th street has been defined a "Hub Urban Village" as part of the City of Seattle's [[Comprehensive Plan]]. The intent is to redevelop the Lake City Urban Village into a higher-density residential/commercial district with many services within walking distance, including mass transit hubs.

It's Lake City.
   
Although the 522 (Lake City Way) corridor has a disproportionate number of auto lots, inflatable gorillas, and signs in ratio to trees, the ratio is inversed if you walk a few blocks to the east or west of the road. There are many well-established larger trees in the surrounding neighborhoods that create the coveted "park-like setting" that has become a rarity in other neighborhoods where a "mountain view" or some other goeographic plus won the battle (read [[Crown Hill]]). This may be due to the fact that the lots are larger on average in this area. There are also many older fruit trees within the neighborhood—remainders from a not-so-distant semi-rural past.

Bill Pierre sells cars here, and there's a cute little park squirreled away off 123rd avenue, just west of Lake City Way.
   
Many of the lots in the northern part of the Lake City area were used for summer cottages by city residents years back. Some of the larger lots in the Olympic Hills Neighborhood were used for growing minks, peacocks, and (the more prosaic) chickens.
