It is squarely in between. But as it continues to grow (vertically), densify and fill-in (talking about Downtown and adjacent neighborhoods), it is slowly inching towards that upper tier. In the summer, it is awesome and very vibrant.

I didn't know if it was a bad experience or just not interested in it and just tried to give you a reason to take a second look. I don't if you don't like Seattle, that's fine. But don't keep on trying to attack me in every comment I post. I come on this website to relax and spark and well thought of discussion not take back hands for something as simple as a positive message. If that bugs you so much that I boost my city then why you just ignore my posts? I'm not on here to starts fights, i'm here to talk about cities, One that im interested in and ones that I already love. So I apologize if I somehow am annoying you by posting on the site but don't keep on trying to attack me.
He does the same to me.He's a stalker.Just ignore him.

I rarely, if ever think about you so the stalker comment is just silly. You and him are both very similar in which you over boost the cities you live in and much of the information you post is false.

having lived in all 3 cities (10 yrs in boston, 1.5 in philly, and 13 in seattle) I would say boston is #1, since there is the boston common next to it, then between philly and seattle, philly has a slight edge. I worked in DT philly and seattle, and lived about 5 blocks from DT boston before.

philly does have its issues with crime, and seattle has issues with homelessness. im not saying DT philly is dangerous, its much safer than the rest of the city, but to a point i have to be more aware when i worked there.

In a few years, i think seattle's DT will be better, with high rises going up.

Maybe I'm prejudiced, but the only city on your list that I think can match Seattle is San Francisco. You have incredible views, ferry rides to Canada, mountains all around, lush grenery, beautiful neighborhoods, delicious & nutritious food, and it's the safest city on the list by far. I guess you could say Seattle doesn't have the night life comparable to ATL or San Fran but otherwise, it's tops.

Stop trying to "cyber bully" people.These personal attacks have got to stop.One thing to disagree but you go WAY to far.

Not even the mention the dozens of condos. When sodo becomes available for development it can easily because like the Boston/Philly/SF tier

It's simply stunning how many people feel as you do: that high-rises equate to better downtowns.

Yes, you are extremely [biased], and it seems as though you don't get out of Seattle much. Seattle can be held in the same conversation/breath as Boston/Philly/SF (or ATL/MPLS), but they all can "beat" Seattle in any number of ways and to deny this is to be in denial, frankly!

Seattle is in between, but definitely closer to Atlanta and Minneapolis (and Denver) than Boston/Philly/SF. Other than the great food, I really don't get the hype. Honestly, I see Seattle being just as good as New Orleans. And SF shouldn't be in the same tier as Boston or Philly, it's above those two.

SF
Boston/Philly

Seattle/New Orleans
Minneapolis/Atlanta/Denver
