Seattle Quick Guide
Seattle is home to a good number of corporate success stories, including outdoor outfitters Eddie Bauer and REI, Starbucks, and Amazon.com, and it could be said that the variety found in those companies represents the varied lifestyles enjoyed by the locals: outdoorsy and entrepreneurial, rugged yet literate.
Seattle's economy is driven by aerospace, bioinformatics, computer software, electronics, environmental engineering, genomics and medical equipment. In addition to being a great place to do business, visitors will find that the city's cultural scene is vibrant and diverse, with resident symphony, opera and ballet companies drawing national acclaim.
The Seattle City Hall is located at 600 4th Ave. Residents are encouraged to call the city's Citizen's Service Bureau at 684-CITY (2489) to get help with problems, file complaints or obtain information about city departments and services.
