Belltown – Experience fine dining while warding off homeless and addicts

Capitol Hill – Enjoy wearing your fauxhawk while calling 9-11

Denny-ile – Denial over the negative appreciation in your recent downtown Seattle condo purchase

Eastside – Close to Microsoft. Location, Location, Location

Fremont – Hippies have been displaced by hipsters

Goldilocks – Seattle RE is not too hot or cold – it’s just right!

House poor – A condition many Seattleites may find themselves facing in 2007.

Irrational District – Someone needs to open a pizza joint up in this mug and fast

Jobs – Becoming increasingly scarce in any field related to real estate and other sectors tied to consumer spending starting in 2007

Occidental Park – see Belltown

Pike Place Market – Much ballyhooed place for bruised fish and pan handling
