why do you like west seattle
– local businesses
– parksDecember 30, 2012 at 6:52 pm #781258December 30, 2012 at 7:59 pm #781259
being our own city within the city.
if i had a job here, i’d rarely cross the jeanette williams memorial bridge.
but i like the easy access and proximity to downtown, as well.December 30, 2012 at 8:55 pm #781260
The views and beautiful scenery are second to none in the Seattle area. Where else can you be on a 500 for bluff above Puget Sound or see the most amazing views of the city skyline like you can here?December 30, 2012 at 9:02 pm #781261December 31, 2012 at 12:13 am #781262December 31, 2012 at 3:13 am #781263December 31, 2012 at 3:26 am #781264
It’s quieter here. Most of my friends in North Seattle seem to be blocks from I-5 or Aurora and you can really hear it.December 31, 2012 at 8:03 am #781265
West Seattle is a destination unto itself. You don’t get here without wanting to be here, and no one’s passing through West Seattle on their way to someplace else…December 31, 2012 at 10:28 am #781266December 31, 2012 at 12:58 pm #781267December 31, 2012 at 1:50 pm #781268
The community, which has always been there, but has been really focused into a strong, loving and warm community by the West Seattle Blog. I love it here! Plus all those other great benefits mentioned above.December 31, 2012 at 3:17 pm #781269
WD…I love the community thing, too. I have noticed how much this community has grown tighter in many ways in the last 7 years. Yes, the WSB has a lot to do with that :)December 31, 2012 at 4:22 pm #781270
What I love (and sometimes don’t love!) is wherever I go in West Seattle I will run into someone I know. Love because I like seeing friends, don’t love because sometimes I am running out and hoping nobody sees me!December 31, 2012 at 4:32 pm #781271
The neighborhood. The food. The Blog. The animal people. The guys at my local 7-11.December 31, 2012 at 4:33 pm #781272
It’s quiet here in a way that reminds me of my own small home town, but less meddling and with way better food. :) After growing up on the flat, dry prairie, I can’t imagine not living by all this water and beautiful landscape. Easy Street Records, Maharaja, West Seattle Fabric Store, WSB, Fiddlehead, Zippy’s, the fine kitty-loving folks at Next to Nature – so many things I can’t imagine living without!December 31, 2012 at 8:25 pm #781273
360 degrees of majestic views! Mountains, Sound, Cityscape…
Mostly affordable living…in the sense…there are less expensive areas in Seattle…but you get sustainable value here!December 31, 2012 at 8:50 pm #781274
It’s close to downtown, but feels a million miles away at times.
Great neighbors, incredible views (although I do not have a view!) and a community feel.
I love walking the Junction and running into 4-5 people you know. You don’t get that everywhere.January 2, 2013 at 5:43 pm #781275
I remember the view I used to have before everyone else built 45 foot boxes right to the property line :)January 3, 2013 at 4:51 am #781276January 3, 2013 at 4:52 am #781277
