According to the U.S. Census Bureau, I live in the most diverse zip code in the nation.
Not the city, not the state, but the nation. And it’s right here in Seattle of all places. Who knew?
Actually, the folks down here in the Rainier Valley knew, and despite the sudden spate of news articles on it, it’s something we’ve proudly proclaimed for years. This distinction is based on old census data, not the new census that’s currently being conducted, and dollars to donuts our zip code has only grown more diverse over the intervening years… as has our nation.
So hop on the light rail and come visit our neck of the woods once in awhile, and have a glimpse at America’s future.
