    "A mixture of college students, homelessness, and families. University of Washington keeps a bustle through the neighborhood during the school year. A difference of one block can move you from a college campus to a peaceful neighborhood. Lots of restaurants, shops and businesses at University Village with a quiet beautiful Ravenna Park just down the street. "
