We seem to have a geographically specific theme going so far today — North Delridge — so we’re adding this Reader Recommendation Request e-mailed the other day by WSB reader “Coffee Geek“:
We are pondering a move to the north Delridge neighborhood … somewhere between Delridge and Avalon. I’m curious what people in the area have to say about living in the neighborhood. How are the neighbors? How “safe” is it relative to the rest of West Seattle? I’d like to move and not be any more worried about break-ins, vandalism, or getting harassed while walking the dogs at night …. all of which happened in a sketchy ‘hood in Chicago. Having said that, we do appreciate and enjoy the diversity West Seattle offers. Thanks!
Post your thoughts in the comments. Also relevant to this topic – just heard this morning about neighborhood info on yet another real-estate website, neighborhoods.realtor.com — Grazing through its list of 400-plus Seattle neighborhoods, we found Delridge, North Delridge, and South Delridge, as well as Alki, Fairmount Park, Fauntleroy, Gatewood, High Point, North Admiral, Westwood Village, and the basic West Seattle. (Those links will take you to the “setting and lifestyle” info that the site lists for each neighborhood — with cutesy names to describe the demographics, such as, for North Delridge, “Home Sweet Home,” “Young Influentials,” and “Suburban Sprawl.”)
