The North Slope is a neighborhood of the north end of Tacoma, Washington, located south of Yakima Hill.
Although there is no truly defined boundary for the North Slope, and it oftentimes bleeds over into Yakima Hill under some definitions, the area typically is considered to border North I Street on the northeast, Division Avenue on the southeast, and North Steele Street on the west. This area is known as the North Slope because it is both (mostly) at a slope and because the streets within it are at a slant relative to the grid of the rest of North Tacoma. Two streets, North State Street and North Trafton Street, as well as portions of North 8th Street, also may be considered part of the North Slope, with a southern boundary on 6th Avenue.
The area is fairly wealthy with large houses and a highly educated population.
