Capitol Hill is Seattle’s oldest neighborhood
If you’re not familiar with the neighborhood, you will love Capitol Hill, as it is centrally located and directly east of the downtown retail core. The neighborhood is one of the most densely populated in the city, and has a largely urban, walkable character with a variety of restaurants, stores and services reachable within a short walk. Capitol Hill is regarded as the center of the city’s LGBT community, but is culturally diverse, with a high concentration of arts organizations and performance locales.
The Mezzo is located just a short walk from Seattle’s new Light Rail line. The underground station is located on Broadway. Speedy elevators and escalators connect the station platform to the street and the surrounding neighborhoods and business district, as well as Seattle Central College. The ride to downtown Seattle is four minutes, the airport 42. Also just a short walk away is the First Hill Streetcar.
