high rises, sort of Asian vibe, not a high volume of traffic, good schools. Average home prices in Bellevue are 800k. Seeing how it is in other parts of the country.

Maybe Clayton, MO is sort of close? Or somewhere in Metro Detroit like Royal Oak or Southfield?

In terms of Michigan, I'd actually say that East Lansing may be the closest fit. It is about 12% Asian and this is its Downtown: https://www.google.com/maps/@42.7355...6!9m2!1b1!2i37

Very good school district and you also have MSU right across Grand River Avenue. Okemos, an adjacent suburb to the east in Meridian Township is around 18% Asian. Haslett, another adjacent suburb in Meridian Township is 11% Asian. There are about 90,000 people between the 3 communities. Housing: https://www.realtor.com/realestatean...,-84.458257,14

Troy, Novi and the Farmington/Farmington Hills area in the Detroit area also have higher percentages, but don't offer the highrises and walkability combo.

Having beach options/proximity to the 95 cities makes a difference in my book.
Lakewood is literally located on on a coast (its most prestigious area is known as the Gold Coast) and it has a beach (albeit a private one you have to pay for a membership to use) in city limits and it is also between two pretty large public beaches (Huntington and Edgewater).

Anyway, I'd say Lakewood has been trendy for about 20 years.

I'd go a couple miles southeast with Lorain Station in Cudell:

Or E. 55th/Broadway in Slavic Village:

https://www.google.com/maps/@41.4672...7i13312!8i6656

Or Buckeye in Buckeye-Shaker:

https://www.google.com/maps/@41.4806...7i16384!8i8192

All are missing some teeth but none are trendy and all have legit potential to be upcoming areas.

I would say Brockport NY fits the bill.

In Spokane, WA, there's a decent concentration of apartments under $1,100, including many in the 700s, once you get outside the immediate downtown area. I guess Seattle's COL hasn't pushed people out there yet.

This neighborhood seems fairly safe and walkable, and I didn't really get a "trendy" vibe anywhere in the city.

Anyway, other neighborhoods that fit this thread include:

Center Square, Albany, NY - Many people commonly call this downtown Albany. It's very pedestrian friendly. I just wish there was a supermarket closer.

New Scotland, Albany, NY - Lived in this neighborhood for many years. Great if you like to walk and cycle. Pizzerias, delis, post office, banks, and more within walking distance. Its neighbor, Pine Hills is also great and is closer to the Price Chopper. Lots of families in this neighborhood.

Schenectady, NY - While this city isn't known for being the safest, I've found the area between Nott and Union in between Ellis Hospital and the High School are extremely safe, quiet, and walkable. Puts you right on the border with Niskayuna which is very safe and very family friendly.

Scotia, NY - Just across the river from Schenectady is Scotia. Small, friendly community with a very walkable strip that's easy to walk to from many of the neighborhoods. I personally think this is the best kept secret in the Capital Region. Scotia's known for being safe. All along Mohawk Ave you have everything you need: barbershops, jewelry stores, banks, gas stations, grocery stores, restaurants, bars, and more.
