Neighborhoods

Seattle is often termed as a city of neighborhoods. The neighborhoods arose as a result of the scattered settlements that were set up by early settlers from Europe. These settlements grew into autonomous towns and neighborhoods. Parks are the most common way through which neighborhoods are defined. Woodland Park is made up of West Meridian and East Phinney neighborhoods.

These neighborhoods mainly thrived on racial restrictions but after 1948, these restrictions were removed. A ward system was initially adopted but later everything changed. There are many transport hubs which are the mainstay of Seattle's economic growth. There have never been any boundaries for showing where one neighborhood ended and where the next one began. Things have always remained this way since 1910. The result of this is a situation where we have informal districts that have no official recognition.
