I lived in Capitol Hill for years, and had no problems walking to Pike Place Market. Living at Belmont & Mercer, it took 20-25 minutes (I do walk at a good clip). We checked out Belltown as well, but ultimately chose Cap Hill since there are so many other daily amenities there - like good gyms, several grocery stores, dentists, eye Drs, just as many restaurants and coffee shops, good transit, etc. One of the deciding factors was the proximity of lovely north Capitol Hill to go for a nice evening stroll in, something I didn't feel all that safe doing in Belltown. The fun thing about renting is the flexibility to change things up, but just more food for thought..
"Pike's" LOL!

I lived in Belltown for about 5 years...although that was back in the mid-90's. One other advantage to living there is proximity to Seattle Center for lots of events/concerts etc. The walk to PIKE Place Market is quite doable, and I did it with a 3-year-old! Sad to hear that downtown Macy's is closing....hope they still do the parade and star lighting etc...another advantage of Belltown living...very close to downtown....at least that used to be an advantage! I lived there without a car and had no problems. I think if OP is young, he/she will love living there. Double points as he/she stated he/she is an introvert...definite plus for Seattle living.

Yesterday's game sucked in many ways. Yesterday Baltimore was the better team, but, and it's a big butt, Seattle is a better team than the one they showed yesterday. Plus, the ref's put out a blind eye to so many passes to our receivers being molested that I was yelling out loud at my Sanyo TV.

Really - throw a flag upon a molestation! Did you see our tight ends throw their hands up in disgust again and again? Now, I know that Flowers and Griffin occasionally pushed a Ravens receiver, but the ref's let some pushing and shoving go. But that, ladies and gentlemen Seahawk fans, was a big reason for our defeat to Baltimore yesterday. ET probably hyped his desire to beat old Pete and the boys so loudly all week that they were like hyper college boys once they hit the field yesterday in Seattle. Booo!!!!!!!!!!!!

They'll rest up and give it another try next week. I have confidence they'll bounce back next week and have the bounce in their step back. Earl Thomas had them extra annoying hyper on defense and the ref's showed a blind man's eye to pert-near everything yesterday. Boo.
