Firsthill

First Hill is a mix of high rise condominiums, historic homes, classic apartment buildings, state of the art medical facilities and exclusive social clubs-all with a distinctive urban flair. Many residents walk or bus to work in this pedestrian and transit friendly neighborhood. First Hill, one of Seattle’s major employment centers, supports over 25,000 jobs. This influx of workers actually doubles the neighborhood’s population during the workday! Most jobs are health care related, which is not surprising since three of Seattle’s major hospitals are located here-thus the neighborhood nickman “Pill Hill.” The Frye Art Museum, The Sorrento Hotel, St. James Cathedral, Seattle University, and Town Hall (a community culture center) are also found in the area.
