Georgetown...

With both kids away for the day, this is where Mr. G. and myself spent the day last Saturday. A cold, but fun, adventure...

5805 Airport Way South Seattle WA

Here is a short excerpt I found on line about the neighborhood. 

Georgetown and SoDo are two distinct neighborhoods just south of Seattle that are being transformed from industrial areas into thriving, trendy enclaves.
Georgetown is about five miles from the heart of the city and is considered Seattle’s oldest residential neighborhood. In fact, Georgetown was its own city in the early part of the 20th century, before it was consolidated with Seattle in 1910.

Since the 1990s, Georgetown has developed into a more residential neighborhood with its own unique identity — one that’s been referred to as “industrial bohemian chic.” Gritty commercial buildings and rail yards have slowly turned into apartments, bars with live music, coffeehouses, art and restaurants serving a diverse, hipster-leaning set that can be seen whizzing around on scooters.
