Not For Tourists Guide to Seattle (2016)
Queen Anne (West)
Like the rest of Queen Anne, this section caters to the upwardly mobile—meaning condos and attractive views. Speaking of which, Kinnear Park provides fine views of the Seattle skyline and Puget Sound from its upper tier, while the lower section appears welcoming until you stumble upon overgrown shrubs and the makeshift hobo camp.
