This is a personal favorite, for obvious reasons. The neighborhoods around me have long been the same, and I’ve never considered a change for the better. I’m not sure anyone else out there has that same feeling.
I mean, Seattle was the first major city in the US to have a bike network. But I digress.
The Seattle-area is a fairly large city (population: 1.8 million), with a well-developed bike network and plenty of other things you can do, such as take the bus or get a car. People in Seattle know what they want, and they get it. They know that when you’re in Seattle, you want to get a cup of coffee, not a cat. But you also get the sense that the city is a relatively small place.
The Seattle-area has a lot of people, and the city itself is a fairly large one. A lot of people drive on the city’s main streets, but they also want to get there before you are there. The roads are often rough. There are no sidewalks, no traffic, and a lot of traffic jams. There are many things that you can do to get somewhere by driving a bike bike. The closest thing to an attempt to get there is to get a cell phone.
The Seattle area is not so large that it is easily accessible by bike. If you want to get there by car, you have to drive up to the city for a few hours each way. It is not possible to drive up and down the same streets in one day. For most of the area, it is simply too big to do this.
The problem is that most of the traffic jams are because of the lack of bike-cycle access. If you’re in Seattle for a few hours or so, you need to get into a bike-cycle zone to avoid the same traffic jams. If you’re in a city that has very few roads available to cycle, it’s hard to get to the city at all.
Seattle is a city where bikes are almost entirely banned. In fact, I’ve been told that in order for a bicycle to be legal in Seattle, the city would need to require it to be built on a lot, which defeats the purpose of having a city of bicycles. Seattle is also a city where the city is so dense that it is extremely hard to get to the city from any street except at street intersections. In that respect it’s much like New York City.
Seattle is an oddity in that it is far too spread out to have a downtown. It is also a city where the city government is so incompetent that it has been forced to start its own police department because the previous one was so slow. That kind of thing just doesn’t happen in the world of the rich.
When I think of Seattle, I think of the view from my office window (which is a bit of a trek from work) of the city.
The city of Seattle is a place whose main purpose is to make it so expensive to live in that the rich people who move there are forced to live like kings. They are also forced to live way out in the country, which means they don’t get the best view of the lake or the mountains, and it’s a very cold city.
