'''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]].

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.
