Seattle Metropolitan Magazine’s latest issue showcases 95 different Western Washington neighborhoods.

And guess what?

They name Burien #2 in their list of five “Up And Comers” neighborhoods!

And we all know that being #2 is good, because that means we try harder.

Unless you’re a third grader, then #2 means something entirely different.

Okay, we caved, spent a hard-earned $5.44 ($4.99 + tax) and bought the actual mag.

Here are some excerpts:

  • What you get: Affordable housing, shorter commute
  • What you don’t get: Multifamily housing 
  • “If Burien Arts Commission member Dane Johnson has his way, the city will become Puget Sound’s version of Brooklyn…”
  • The Future: “Burien’s aggressive plan for growth and modernization centers on its downtown, where a new, mixed-use town center is under way…”

By the way, Burien isn’t the only area ‘hood mentioned in this issue: Normandy Park was ranked #5 in their list of “The Hot Hoods,” behind Ballard, Greenlake, Kirkland and Lake Forest Park.
