Seattle has been a great neighborhood since I moved here in April of last year. A few things have been a bit odd, however. I once caught a guy stealing my neighbor's tires and when i called the cops, they never came. Other than that, it's not so bad. Has a bit of a retirement town feel to it in some places, and a college town feel in other places. The social life out here is great, the people are sweet and easy going. Of course, you'll definitely get your share of people complaining about Starbucks, traffic, and over population. I have noticed that the city sleeps around 9 most days, besides capitol hill, that is. The rainbow side walks and Seattle dogs make capitol hill its own beast entirely. What I love the most is the ferris wheel, if they sold a season pass to that, i'd be there at least twice a week! All in all, it's a great city. Big city feel with a small-town mentality. Honest people, and lets not forget all the great music and beer.
