I believe you meant "wow, after seeing that, Seattle truly is the greatest city in the Pacific Northwest" ;)

Nice pictures of Teletubby Park. What's with the douchebag from Vancouver?

Small dick in Vancouver apparently. Vancouver is a great city, and nicer than Seattle in a lot of ways, but it takes an especially pathetic loser to bring something like that up here. I bet this candyass has a Camaro.

pwright, great post!

Vancouver is Seattle without unique neighborhoods, interesting people, an economy, nightlife, music scene or culture unique to itself. It's true sorry.

It appears far less tropical/subtropical than Vancouver. (That's not a put-down btw...)

Am I correct?

Really, you are right . Vancouver has no unique neighborhoods (Kits,westvan ,yaletown,chinatown,granville island), people (i guess having one of the most diverse cities on the continent doesnt count) or economy (our ports compete directly with yours) or nightlife (granville st on a friday). In the case of music scene you maybe right but no culture unique to itself (i wonder where the word vancouverism came from)

Anyways ,Seattle looked quite vibrant in those pictures

Seattle defines itself as being a city in the pacific northwest, Vancouver as the warmest place in Canada, hence a lot of planting of windmill palms there that survive in the northwest climate. Seattle is usually just a few degrees warmer and supports the same vegetation.

KK thanks... I just don't see the dirtied buildings, and greenery growing on the sides and roofs of buildings. Now I know, though...

However, having been to Vancouver before a few times, I can assure you that what you say about it is a load of BS... honestly, it was the best surprise of a city I've ever had... I hate to say it, but I like it alot more than some of the world's 'best cities'.
