Dawson is West between Millcreek and Beekman. This is a little "pocket neighborhood" of two streets and there is some light insustrial/office around it.

If you google map view it there appear to be some nice houses on the block and there is a large green space behind the street. One upon a time in the 1880's this entire area would have been residential. It appears to be nicely wooded all around it in the aerial view.

One could take Beekman down to town, cross the Viaduct and never have to go on the freeway or get on the freeway and get just about anywhere pretty easily.

With the on going work they are doing on Mill Creek with paths and such I image the neighborhood would only get better over time.
