  1. Is 100K accurate? I have no idea; I was just wondering that the other day (only lived here 5 years; Belvidere neighborhood — love it)

  2. Anybody know how many people live in West Seattle? I thought it was around 100,000, maybe 120,000?

  3. I wish the media would stop calling the proposed bridge “over” or “across” Elliott Bay. The actual proposal is for a bridge span above and parallel to the central waterfront, not a bridge crossing Elliott Bay to West Seattle.

  4. 78,000 according to the 2000 census. We’ll dig a little harder later to see if we can find anything more current.

  5. It sure seems like 100,000 – and they’re all on Admiral Way during rush hours.
