I live down near Magnusson and i can't wait to get out of this area myself. Not the best place to raise kids in, and I'm supposedly in the "good area" of Seattle.
The college kids always have drinking parties near the public parking at my apartment complex so there are cups, spilled drinks, and idiots disrespecting your property by sitting on your car if you park there. Main problem is that the public parking area backs up to Magnusson Park so they can just run into there and run off if the cops are called.
Lake Stevens here I come!
