About the Neighborhood

The Central Area, commonly called the Central District or CD, is a mostly residential district in Seattle located east of First Hill (12th Avenue and Rainier Avenue); west of Madrona , Leschi and Mt. Baker; south of Capitol Hill, and north of Rainier Valley. Historically, the Central District has been one of Seattle's most racially and ethnically diverse neighborhoods, and was once the center of Seattle's black community and a major hub of African-American businesses.
