West Seattle Junction – or just the Junction to locals – is a hotspot of shops, restaurants, and bars. Besides retail and dining therapy, you can also catch a live show at the ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery.

The diverse entertainment options have attracted a diverse population. Rock'n'rollers (Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, and Alice in Chains band members have called this neighborhood home) mix with professionals, artists, and retirees.

Residents speak highly of the close-knit community atmosphere even as younger people move in next door to families who have lived here for decades.

Housing stock consists of older, well-maintained Craftsman-style homes and brand new apartment buildings.

The Junction is bordered on the west, north, and east by Genesee and on the south by Fairmount Park and Seaview.
