    Everything around Amazon is not safe because of the tweakers but if you live in SF now then maybe you don't mind. Safe areas are on the east side but unless you're right on a bus line transit is probably more like 45-60min

      Kirkland or Bellevue close to the lake is well less than 30 minutes to Amazon. Could be little as 15. SLU is not residential. At all. All several story buildings. I also suggested QA, GL, Magnolia and Madison Park - Seattle side neighborhoods.

      I think you're mixing up the concepts of SFH and residential. Residential can be multi family buildings

      I work @Amazon in SLU and live in Queen Anne. Great neighborhood, quick commute. PM me if you want more details :)

      I live in SLU and do NOT feel safe at all here. Lots of homeless people, I’ve been followed by one at night begging while I walked my dog. Lots of people doing drugs in the park.

      Some of the homeless people are lovely and kind. Some are aggressive. It’s a toss up.

      I’m moving ASAP. Because of the homeless + it’s boring as shit around here. A ghost town after work hours, nothing to do.

      Twitch is right. SLU is completely urban. Not residential at all.

    Queen Anne, Ballard, Fremont, Green lake, Wallingford, U-District. Close, safe, yuppie, gentrified. Awesome bike commutes in the spring/summer.

    Belltown would be like a 20 min walk from SLU or like a 10 min walk from the new buildings in Denny Triangle

    Ballard is a 20-30 minute bus ride from SLU

    I live in the capital hill/central district and walk. Depending on where you are, it’s like 15-30 minutes to walk for a lot of this area. It’s great.

    Also, if you’re used to San Jose and like that, then East Side will feel familiar. If you instead wish you lived in some of the neighborhoods in/around SF, then stay on Seattle side of the lake.

    Looking for house with yard? I assume so by residential. Upper Queen Anne, Madison Park, Magnolia and Green Lake fit the bill and North of downtown Seattle like Amazon. You can find pockets in neighborhoods south of Amazon (West Seattle, Madrona, Seward Park) but more busy and good/bad neighborhoods closer to each other.

    If good public schools are important look to the East Side of Lake Washington - Kirkland, Bellevue and in the middle Mercer Island. Plenty of residential places, safe as can be and great schools. East side will feel like living in the burbs, while Seattle side neighborhoods I mentioned up top will still feel like you’re living in the city.
