Seattle City/Bldgs/Harbor and Bellevue

Just a handful of pictures I've taken over the past few months...

Beautiful! One of my favourite North-American cities. I love the skyline combined with the mountain range in the distance, and then with the water everywhere... Brilliant setting.

I even know it from playing a couple of videogames. When I was a little boy I was a real airplane-fanatic and I used to play a flight simulator game called "Flight Unlimited III", in which you could fly a couple of airplanes, only in the Seattle area.
And the PS1 game of the X-Files was set in Seattle as well. Really loved that game too.

If I ever get to visit North-America, Seattle is definitely high on my A-list of places to visit.

Ow, and I almost forgot: very good work!

You've GOT to be kidding! Maybe it's a religious day after all! In particular, the January Bellevue shot is possibly the best Bellevue shot ever.

That panorama shot is hard to beat. I'm dying for the day when 5th and Columbia is completed. Until then, keep showing off our spectacular skyline.

Yep. I nearly soiled myself when I saw that shot. Sick set! Keep it up!

I agree! I was just sitting here and upon seeing that photo I literally yelled out "OH MY GOD!"

It is an incredible photo! But these are all great. I've said it before, but I'll say it again - if I were to ever move away from Chicago, Seattle would probably be my #1 choice.

The eastside suburbs are by far the most affluent. The cities of Bellevue, Redmond, Kirkland, Issaquah and others. Bill Gates and Paul Allen live on the eastside. However they do not come close to Seattle in terms of entertainment, nightlife, restraunts, shopping, culture etc.

Tacoma is kind of iffy. Its downtown and certain areas are nice but as you go south its gets kind of bad around the tacoma mall.

Bremerton and the Kitsap Penninsula are lovely!! lots of natural beauty.

In my opinion Seattle is the best place to live!! The eastside would be next preferably in Kirkland or Bellevue.

Bremerton is utterly dominated by the Navy, with multiple huge bases. It's a scenic hour ferry ride from Seattle. It's historically been blue collar and cheap with a half-abandoned downtown, but in this decade its downtown has been getting an infusion of waterfront housing, parks, small office buildings, and tourism.

Tacoma's downtown was also horrible 15 years ago. A series of localized upgrades since then is starting to create some cohesion and prosperity. These include a theater district (early 90s I'm guessing), a new University of Washington branch campus, a very successful new museum district next to the UW, a revitalized waterfront, probably 1,500 (wild guess) units of new housing in the central-most square mile but generally not in the CBD proper, a new convention center, a new hotel or two, a few small and mid-sized office buildings, a new free streetcar, and so on. As for the rest of the city, everything north and northwest of Downtown is great and the rest is generally low-rent, at least by Seattle standards.

The Eastside is ok as suburbs go. Downtown Bellevue is on the verge of being a legitimate second downtown for the region. More and more Seattle suburbs are getting good lowrise downtowns, and Kirkland is one of the best and largest of these.
