hello, were looking to move north of Seattle. Edmonds,Lynnwood,Bothell,Shoreline. Also considering neighborhoods in north Seattle. Broadview,north Gate, Lake City, maybe even closer in around Greenwood or ballard. Any sugestion on safe neighborhoods and schools in these areas ( son starting H.S. this year ) were looking to rent a 2 brm. place for around 1200 - 1400. we will be out there soon to scout it out and any heads up on where to look and where not to, would be very much appreciated.
Also, Ive been reading alot of comments on neighborhoods west of the 5 and not to much east of the interstate in north Seattle. Is there a reason? is it safe? If not, is that the same for east of the 5 in Shoreline?

Thanks so much!!!

Lifelong resident here. Ballard High School alumni. Every neighborhood north of the ship canal to the city limit is wonderful. Around Northgate and Lake City arteries you'll find more density (apts, multi-family units) but there isn't one neighborhood I'd hesitate to live in... although, I am hugely biased. Ballard, Greenwood, Phinney Ridge, Loyal Heights; these are all walking distance from our home. I love my neighborhood and wouldn't live anywhere else. Come join us.

I cannot at all agree with Northgate and Lynnwood and Bothell are pretty far out there. Ballard is great and I like Greenwood, Shoreline and Edmonds.

thank you for the comments, there very much appreciated. Edmonds and Shoreline seem to get only pos. coments on the form so I have been focased on that area mostly. Most areas in north seattle sound great too, the school rating for the H.S. that serves northgate area is not so great but the neighborhoods around Green Lake seem to have good reps as far as I can see from surfing these forums. We will be there soon to check it out. I only have a map to reference at the moment and it doesn't seem like bothell is much further than Edmonds to the city. Of cores I'm ignorant of the roads/traffic. Shoreline dose sound good, town/schools have good rep and close to the city though I'm not reading anything on neighborhoods in Shoreline. I Shoreline more suburb vs. urb? Is there areas to stay away from? My son and husband are very outdoorsy, parks,hiking,biking, that sort of thing. Thanks!!!!
