Population Watch

Feeling a bit crowded around town lately? Understandable as it turns out Seattle is officially the fastest-growing major city in the United States, according to population estimates released Thursday by the Census Bureau. Seattle grew by 2.8% between July 2012 and July 2013, adding 18K residents to top out at around 652K. Seattle is also now the 21st-biggest city in the county, surpassing Boston. Take that, Boston.
