According to Wikipedia, it is Seattle’s oldest neighborhood, established in 1851.

I was in Georgetown Thursday evening drinking beers at the Machine House Brewery with friends. I hadn’t spent much time in the neighborhood before, and didn’t wander around much while I was there. I did, however see dozens of very large jets flying just a couple hundred yards above the buildings as they approached the landing strip at Boeing Field. Very loud, and quite startling at times. I thought why Georgetown? This neighborhood should be named Jet City.

I road my bike down to Georgetown this morning with hopes of getting some great shots of jets flying overhead, but I never saw or heard a jet the whole hour I was there wandering around. I guess they don’t schedule flights in on Saturday mornings so as not to distract visitors from taking in all it has to offer.

Georgetown is home to the building that housed the original Rainier Brewery. It now houses the Machine House Brewery.

I didn’t see a tether-ball pole anywhere near it. Maybe they bring it out for special occasions.

Ever been to a trailer-park mall?

Next trip I’m hoping there are jets roaring over me again.
