Seattle is one of America's Fastest-Growing Cities
The tech industry and Amazon, combined with natural surroundings of water and mountains is making Seattle a rapidly-growing city. Here are some "fun facts" about the largest city in the PNW:
- Estimated population: 724,745 (2017...and growing)
- Named after: Chief Seattle (Si'ahl), a Suquamish and Duwamish chief
- Major employers: Boeing, Lewis McChord, Microsoft, UW, Amazon.
Check back in the future for more posts about the Emerald City, including a vintage Seattle section (realizing that the era one considers "vintage" is relative).
