DON’T go to the Seattle Center, or Queen Anne, or West Howe Street!

We are east of Aurora, not west.

Our address is 656 Howe Street, Seattle, WA 98109.  We are a short block uphill from the corner of Dexter and Howe, looking down on the Swedish Cultural Center.  Our house is easy to get to, by many different modes of transportation.

By Car:  Google, Mapquest, Apple, etc. all know where we live.  But if you have an older GPS system that is not net-connected, it still may have the bad USPS address database that thinks we are on the west side of Queen Anne.  So if you are being told to go to the other side of Aurora, don’t do it.  Tell it that you want to go to 1903 Dexter Avenue North instead.

Parking:  It isn’t legal to park on Howe Street, for a very good reason: the circle is a firetruck turnaround.  Our driveway which can hold at least six cars, or more if the early arrivers park as far up the hill as possible.  Otherwise, park in the Swedish Cultural Center’s overflow lot, on the SW corner of Dexter and Howe.  Ignore the Diamond parking sign -- they only manage the lot during the day on work days.

By Bus:  The 26 and 28 stop at the corner of Dexter and Howe.  (The northbound stop is inexplicably labeled “Newton”.)  Or you can take the RapidRide “E” line to Galer, then walk north along Aurora (crossing over the pedestrian walkway if you are southbound). In about three blocks, Aurora takes a minor bend left, pretty much right in front of our house.  The stair-climb to the right of a chain link fence will take you down to our front door.

By Bike:  Dexter is Seattle’s best bike route, if you are strong enough to do the hill.  From the north, take the Burke-Gilman and cross over at the Fremont Bridge.
