The Other Georgetown


When talking about Georgetown, most people think of the district in Washington, DC. But there is another Georgetown. In another Washington. Washington state. Last month when I was teaching in the Pacific Northwest, I stayed in the Georgetown neighborhood of Seattle. It was the perfect gritty, urban spot for me. It reminded me of Brooklyn. With microbreweries.

It had graffiti...




Amazing shops...

 






A trailer park mall...





...with Amber and John, the coolest couple ever, from Seek and Restore...


And just the right amount of urban photo ops...

Looks like you found the perfect spot for you in Seattle! You could probably stay there for a month or two without having problems with your head!!!

The Trailer Park Mall would be the perfect place to bring Zippee!

I have never been to the State of Washington, Seth, but once Russ retires (if ever), we will head West. What a fun was to explore! Thanks for sharing!
