Which Northwest places are ‘great’?
Well Seattle, we’ve been snubbed again.
The American Planning Association just put out its list of 2011 Great Places and the Emerald City is nowhere to be found: Not in Great Neighborhoods, Great Streets or Great Public Spaces.
In fact, in all of Washington and Oregon, only Tacoma’s Point Defiance Park was named a Great Place this year. The only Seattle honoree ever was, you guessed it: Pike Place Market.
