Seattle (pronounced /siːˈætəl/, us dict: sē·ăt′·əl) is the most populous city in the northwestern United States. It is named after Chief Sealth, of the Duwamish and Suquamish tribes. The encompassing Seattle-Tacoma-Bellevue metropolitan statistical area is the 15th largest in the United States, and the largest in the Pacific Northwest.[7] A coastal city and major seaport, it is located in the western part of the state on an isthmus between Puget Sound (an arm of the Pacific Ocean) and Lake Washington, about 96 miles (154 km) south of the Canada – United States border. A major economic, cultural and educational center in the region, Seattle is the county seat of King County. As of April 1, 2009, the city had a municipal population of 602,000,[1]making it the twenty-fifth most populous city in the U.S. and a metropolitan area population of 3,344,813.[3]
The Seattle area has been inhabited for at least 4,000 years,[8] but European settlement began only in the mid-19th century. The first permanent white settlers—Arthur A. Denny and those subsequently known as the Denny Party—arrived November 13, 1851. Early settlements in the area were called "New York-Alki" ("Alki" meaning "by and by" in the local Chinook Jargon) and "Duwamps". In 1853, Doc Maynard suggested that the main settlement be renamed "Seattle", an anglicized rendition of the name of Sealth, the chief of the two local tribes. From 1869 until 1982, Seattle was known as the "Queen City".[9] Seattle's current official nickname is the "Emerald City", the result of a contest held in the early 1980s;[10]
the reference is to the lush evergreen forests of the area. Seattle is
also referred to informally as the "Gateway to Alaska", "Rain City",[11] and "Jet City", the last from the local influence of Boeing. Seattle residents are known as Seattleites.
Seattle is the birthplace of rock legend Jimi Hendrix and grunge music,[12] including Nirvana, Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, and Soundgarden. Bruce Lee and Brandon Lee are also buried at Lakeview cemetery. Seattle has a reputation for heavy coffee consumption;[13] coffee companies founded or based in Seattle include Starbucks,[14] Seattle's Best Coffee,[15] and Tully's.[16] There are also many successful independent artisanal espresso roasters and cafes.[13] Researchers at Central Connecticut State University
ranked Seattle the most literate city of America's sixty-nine largest
cities in 2005 and 2006, second most literate in 2007 (after Minneapolis),[17] and tied with Minneapolis in 2008.[18]
Additionally, survey data by the United States Census Bureau indicated
that Seattle was the most educated city in the U.S., with 52.4 percent
of residents aged 25 and older having a bachelor's degree.[19] In terms of per capita income,
a study by the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis ranked the Seattle
metropolitan area 17th out of 363 metropolitan areas in 2006.[20]
The railways and streetcars that once dominated its transportation
system have largely been replaced with an extensive bus route for those
living near the city center, and the city's outward growth has caused
automobiles to become the main mode of transportation for much of the
population in the middle to late twentieth century. As a result,
Seattle is ranked as one of the most congested cities in the United
However, recent efforts to reverse this trend at the municipal and
state levels have included plans for an inner-city streetcar network
(one line of which is complete and operational) and a regional
light-rail system extending from the city core south to the
international airport as well as to the eastern and northern suburbs. [22][23]
In addition to its bus routes, Seattle is also serviced by two commuter
rail routes connecting it to many of its more distant suburbs, and the
city's first light rail line will be opening in the summer of 2009.[24]
