  WHAT’S LIVING IN Crown Hill LIKE?

Crown Hill is a neighborhood in northwest Seattle and is considered the quiet sister to the more boisterous Ballard neighborhood on its south. You'll find modest single-family homes, a strong community vibe, and typical neighborhood businesses along its two main streets, NW 87th Street and 12th Avenue NW. The Sound View Playfield has running trails, athletic fields, and playground.

Crown Hill is bordered on the north by Blue Ridge, on the east by Greenwood, on the south by Ballard, and on the west by Olympic Manor.
