The Central Waterfront was once the hub of Seattle's maritime activity. Since the construction of a container port to its south in the 1960s, the area has increasingly been converted to recreational and retail uses. As of 2008, several century-old piers are devoted to shops and restaurants. There are several parks, a Ferris wheel, an aquarium, and one over-water hotel. πŸ“· by @_michellewegener #seattlewa #seattlewashington #cityofseattle #iloveseattle #washingtonstate #pacificnorthwest #seattlelife #seattleskyline #cityview #seattlegreatwheel #seattlewaterfront

A movement by women arose from Seattle during the Depression. Fueled by Eleanor Roosevelt’s book It’s Up to the Women, women pushed for recognition, not just as housewives, but as the backbone to family. Using newspapers and journals Working Woman and The Woman Today, women pushed to be seen as equal and receive some recognition. πŸ“· by @rringdahl #seattle #waterfront #seattlewa #seattlewashington #cityofseattle #iloveseattle #washingtonstate #pacificnorthwest #seattlelife #seattleskyline #cityview #greatview #beautifuldestinations #aerialview #seattlehistory #seattleviews #womeninhistory #eleanorroosevelt
From 1869 until 1982, Seattle was known as the "Queen City". Seattle's official nickname is the "Emerald City", the result of a contest held in 1981; the reference is to the lush evergreen forests of the area. Seattle is also referred to informally as the "Gateway to Alaska" for being the nearest major city in the contiguous U.S. to Alaska, "Rain City" for its frequent cloudy and rainy weather, and "Jet City" from the local influence of Boeing. πŸ“· by @jayvisuals_ #seattle #seattlewa #seattlewashington #cityofseattle #iloveseattle #washingtonstate #pacificnorthwest #seattlelife #seattleweather #seattlebound #spaceneedle #seattlespaceneedle #nightscape #moodygrams
