I'd like to live in Alki (moving from Mountain View in the Bay Area), and I see a lot of listings for places to rent. I have some questions, however:
1) I've heard the bridge out of West Seattle is a level of Dante's own Hell -- long commutes, lots of sitting, stopped traffic. Any comments?
2) I've read complaints from people who live in Alki that, come Summer, the place becomes unlivable due to a huge influx of people heading to the beaches. I've read complaints of gang activity and lots of loud music and bad attitudes. Any comments?
Thanks for any input.
