No. 2 Columbia City


Seattle is known for its mix of cultures, but few places in the nation are as diverse as Columbia City. It's also one of the greenest communities in the country. For some reason, everyone wants to build their eco-friendly home here. Despite that, there's also still bargains to be found. That's an impressive accomplishment all things considered. It also doesn't hurt to have Columbia City Theater, Geraldine's and a convenient light rail station at your disposal as well. CC defeated U District and Pioneer Square to get to this round.

No. 3 Belltown

Russ Walker

Seems like this neighborhood gets overshadowed for "the next big thing" but it's one of the city's oldest and most contrasting spots. While Denny Triangle and Downtown get all the love, Belltown is still building and the prices are going up. The neighborhood’s real estate & rental market is among the most dependable but so many of the classic haunts and clubs remain in business in spite of the encroachment. Belltown survived a scare from Delridge and bested Fremont to get here.

Ed. Note - We’ve had some people ask us why Columbia City advanced over Belltown even though Belltown came ahead in the Final Four poll. We noticed some voting irregularities in that poll that occured late in the voting period. We decided to throw out all votes from that period and when we returned to the point before the issue, Columbia City was way ahead in the poll. Sorry for the confusion.
