Let's start out with this fun fact: this is where Ray Charles began his career—not to mention, Quincy Jones. A decade or two after the post-war area became known for its "South Jackson Jazz Street," the music played on in this inspiring pocket of Seattle through to the 1950s. Later, this would be the stomping grounds of Jimi Hendrix.
The area around Pratt Park is a culturally and historically lush neighborhood experiencing a long overdue revival. Verse Seattle residents not only benefit from the centrality and proximity to Seattle's most vibrant neighborhoods, such as Capitol Hill, First Hill, Downtown, Pioneer Square, the International District, and Beacon Hill, but within Verse Seattle's own zip code there are 36 parks, the Pratt Arts Creative Community Center, and a convenient shopping center just across the street. Urban commuting couldn't be easier: multiple bus lines are adjacent to the property; the new street car line is within blocks; 23rd Avenue is a straight shot to the University District and the University of Washington; the lightrail is within 10-12 blocks; and access to both major freeways is within 5 minutes. Residents easily walk, bus, or bike it to most destinations!
