Columbia City recently scored a 92% on WalkScore, a grading system that ranks how walkable a certain area is. This stellar score highlights just how viable of a transportation option walking is in this neighborhood. The neighborhood also has its own light rail station -- the Columbia City Link Station -- which provides commuter rail access to the Link’s Central line. It’s still somewhat new, having opened in 2009. The station also is a stop for the bus lines that run through the area, although you can catch them on any of the major streets here. If you’re big on public transportation, check out Rainier Vista, a housing project that is developed around the rail station.

It was a very big deal when the Census Bureau named Columbia City’s zip code as the most diverse in the country. This study cited how you can just walk into a local cafe and here ten or fifteen languages being spoken at once. Overall, the Bureau estimated that nearly 60 different languages are spoken here. Unlike other neighborhoods where diversity can lead to racial tension or class segregation, the community is a very safe and happy place to be. Mostly all residents respect each other (I haven’t heard of any incidents that would prove otherwise) and use their diverse cultures to weave a truly unique culture here. The New York Times even recognized the neighborhood and said that it’s a microcosm of Seattle itself.
