    "I can’t really say much for parents. I don’t have kids and I rarely see families around here, but there are a few here and there. Absolutely none in my apartment building. I don’t even know where the schools are around here, besides the community college lol. Honestly, I would move out of Capitol Hill if I wanted to raise a family. "

    "I love the older architecture and big houses. The hills create the feeling of space between the houses, and contribute to each lot’s character and views. The lot sizes vary and some have great yards, others are smaller. Most houses are far enough off the street/sidewalk to create privacy. "

    "Public transit here is so far behind. I don’t understand how this city taxes everyone so much for cost of living but can’t put together a decent public transit system. A 15 minute drive shouldn’t take me 1hr 15minutes. Oh and congrats Washington for extending the light rail system that’ll be finished in 5 years if we’re lucky."
