An e-mail from a potential new hill neighbor highlights something I don’t think I fully appreciated until now — 12th Avenue Laundry stands alone against dirty laundry at the top of Capitol Hill. The e-mail:
I have a question and don’t quite know where to turn. I am thinking of renting on 19th and E Republican, and I am trying to locate the closest laundromat to me. I know of the one on 12th and John, but I’m hoping to find something closer. Thanks for any suggestions!
As far as I know, 12th Ave is your only choice, new potential neighbor. Most of the apartment buildings in the area billow out fabric softener-scented steam so I’m assuming lots of renters toward the top of the hill have laundry rooms at their disposal.
