Located 7 miles northeast of downtown Seattle along Lake City Way NE is the neighborhood of Lake City. Lake City has seen its share of settlers, from the hah-chu-ahbsh (Lake People) to city dwellers during the prohibition era. The neighborhood grew rapidly after World War II, leading to the expansion of highways and Seattle city limits. Lake City's business district is currently thriving, and residents are focusing on environmental efforts. The Thornton Creek watershed is the focus of a long restoration campaign by Lake City residents and Seattle Public Utilities to enhance the neighborhood's appeal. A neighborhood mixed of residential housing and a diverse business district, Lake City is bordered by Cedar Park to the north, Lake Washington to the east, Wedgwood and Maple Leaf to the south, and Northgate to the southwest.
