This map is part of a series depicting the 40 largest cities in the United States (as ranked by CBSA). This series will run through the month of July.

Great composition -- par for the course for a Koch birdseye -- on this map of Seattle, Washington [gmap].

Interesting coloring and dynamism. Great map; one of my favorites on the whole site.
