Cities in the Seattle metropolitan area

See Category:Cities in the Seattle metropolitan area.

Many of these need serious work, as they aren't far from the auto-generated entries. List of cities in Washington (by population) might help with this; it highlights Seattle-area cities in green.

Seattle, Washington

Seattle, Washington is a featured article and appeared on Wikipedia's Main Page as "Today's featured article" on October 17, 2005.

Seattle neighborhoods

See Category:Neighborhoods in Seattle and List of Seattle neighborhoods.

So far, we have named neighborhoods XXXXX, Seattle. As of August 2008, virtually all articles have at least been started, though many are still rather stubby.

A lot of these could be improved by using a more normal citation style.

Not everything listed here is necessarily notable. Do be prepared to justify notability if you take these on.

Bridges and tunnels

Many other major U.S. cities have articles about their major streets. There are almost none of these for Seattle as of November 2012. See Category:Streets in Seattle, Washington.







We have a near stub on the 2012 Seattle cafe shooting spree. We do not have much biographical information on the victims (even though at least two were rather well-known musicians) nor on the Café Racer (Seattle) even though it is a pretty prominent music venue, and it would be easy to find third-party articles about the music scene centered there. - Jmabel | Talk 02:04, 19 November 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Photos wanted

See Category:Wikipedia requested photographs in Seattle for the main list of articles needing photos. Free images, of course. For some of these, we have fair use images, but those aren't really a good solution.

A wide variety of local newspaper archives are available online with the use of a local library card. Most systems in Washington state are able to give reciprocal cards to members of other Washington state library systems.
