Remember, if you rent it's not a home, it's a hovel.

Interesting site, however i think they confuse the word "white" with "leftist".

I love that site, though it's definitely "stuff over educated urban liberal yuppies aged 25-35 like".

The author of the site referred to it, in an NPR interview, as "stuff NPR listeners like".

:)

The whole anti-Eastside thing is annoying. I just moved (back) to the Eastside after living in a number of different locations in King County, in Seattle, and not in Seattle. For the wife and I, it fits our needs with respect to:

-proximity to jobs that *we* work at
-proximity to things that *we* like to do at the weekend (hiking, biking, chilling out on the deck with the nice view from a house that didn't cost over a million bucks)

We still go to Seattle to the art museum, sports events (when free tickets demand my attendance), restaurants and to see friends. We're able to do so because we have this invention called a "car" which, by the way, we use less now because we're closer to our jobs.

Some people with the anti-Eastside bent seem to to think that the only way for everyone to live is within walking distance of a coffee shop and with constant 15 minute access to the art museum.

If anyone out there with this anti-Eastside disease is reading this, take a while to consider why you're so judgmental when other people choose to live somewhere different to where you live. Consider that there needs, desires, and situation may be different to yours.

I couldn't care less if you live on the Eastside or not, and this is the first time I've heard of "anti-Eastside disease" in 20 years of living in Seattle...

The main reason I'm not considering the Eastside for my next home is that it's wicked expensive. If I'm gonna live in suburbia, I'm not going to pay Queen Anne prices to do so.

But I don't hold you in contempt. It's better tha we corral all the boring people in one place anyway! Keeps the parties on the cool side hopping!

That was a joke. Mostly.

Why on earth would someone care what other people think of where they live?

Maybe it's a sign of gentrification, but dude,it's not simply near First Hill, it's the CD. Spittin distance from Home of Good, a Seattle Barbecue institution.
