Mercer Island has 3 main neighborhoods, " North, Mid Island, and South" how are these areas marked?

I have been told many times by long time residents/ realtors that the brake off points are 40th north is "North End", 40th to 53rd is "Mid Island" and 53rd south is "South End"?  Zillow has them marked a little different? Any thoughts? Ideas? Opinions? Geo

North End, Mid-Island, and South End aren't really neighborhood so much as broader geographical areas. Sort of like saying Seattle is broken down into North Seattle, Central Seattle, and South Seattle. There are many, many neighborhoods within those areas. Just on the North End of Mercer Island, there's First Hill (where I live), East Seattle, downtown, and Mercerdale to name a few. There are many distinct micro-neighborhoods with different feels on Mercer Island, so it's not really fair to break it into just three chunks.

Feel free to contact me with questions about any particular areas on Mercer Island!

I am not aware that Zillow is an expert on Mercer Island neighborhoods.  I have lived on Mercer Island, and I currently have a waterfront listing there.  There are a variety of opinions about how to divide the island, but I feel there are more than three neighborhoods.  There is the desirable west side, with sunset views.  There is the east side, with typically lower prices.  There is the southend  with some inventory of newer homes, and views of Mt. Rainier.  There is the northend, with easy access to freeways and the village.  There are several nice neighborhoods in the center of the island.  There are more ways to divide Mercer Island than Zillow suggests.

Zillow doesn't know. I don't think residents feel that their neighborhoods are divided latitudinally, so why should anyone else?
