AKA Spok-vegas Spokangeles
, the 'kan.
Long the second largest city in Washington state
, Spokane had recently dropped to third (to Tacoma
) in terms of population, but as of March '05 it is number two again. It's sad to fight to be #2.
The chief attraction of Spokane is Riverfront Park, a 100 acre park centered around the Spokane River in the downtown area, and designed by the Olmsted Brothers.
Spokane is the home of Bloomsday, the world's largest road race. Cyan, creators of Myst
originated in Spokane. Notable Spokanites include Bing Crosby, John Stockton, George Lynch, Craig T. Nelson, David Eddings, and Gabe and Tycho of Penny-Arcade
Spokane has been called the meth
capital of America. A medium sized city, it suffers from urban sprawl
and a small-town attitude. It's hard to find a decent job in Spokane, but it's a cheap place to live and it's great if you like outdoor activities, as there are several lakes and mountains in the region.
Spokane: a nice place to visit.
The second largest city in Washington
State,has it's middle upper class neighborhoods like the Southill and the more lower class neighborhoods like West Central or Hillyard. Known for meth
in some areas. Has a 100 acre park park downtown and held expo'74. There is a lot of white trash and alot of wiggers, but has most of their black people around downtown.First thing you'll notice might be all the homeless people, that care more about meth than money. Not that bad of a city if you like the outdoors or if your just looking for weed. I might move back next week to meet up with my old 18th street homies
UPPERCLASS GUY: Spokane is very nice, I love the parks and I don't run into them dirty theiving negroes much up on the southill.
HOMELESS GUY DOWNTOWN: Man nigga, Fuck spokane
The 2nd Largest city in Washington state. It is also a WA county. It is located on the east side of WA.
Spokane is know as the "Gateway to the Rocky Mountains."
Also the Spokane River, runs through the city.
"Spokane is fairly medium sized city but has a small town attitude."
Midsize city of about 250,000 in Washington State. Very much like every other midsize city in America; people complain about there being nothing to do when there actually is stuff.
We have Bloomsday and Hoopfest. And had the U.S. Figure Skating Championships a couple of times. Some cool bands come through every once in a while. It's fun to walk around downtown and hang out in Riverfront Park, watch the falls, stop into Boo Radley's, stroll through River Park Square. there are quite a few nice parks around the city.
There's a meth problem, but it isn't as bad as people think. In nearly every city with meth, people call it the "meth capitol of the U.S.!!!" Politics are somewhat conservative, but not extremely so by any means; the city is actually somewhat liberal. Our mayor is currently a Democrat and people are supportive.
Overall, your typical American midsize city with its own quirks. Marmots!
Spokane's pretty cool.
Second largest city in Washington, behind Seattle. Like all middle children, it harbors a resentment of the eldest while simultaneously trying to be exactly like it and failing miserably. As such, Spokane tries to present itself as a more quaint, provincial version of Seattle, except that it has no culture and only five or six minorities on a good day.
Spokane is a good place to go if you would like to be shot by the police. The incompetent boobs who run the department specialize in firing upon minors, beating retarded janitors to death and ticketing old men with canes for jaywalking. But that's only because they are incredibly efficient at their jobs and have virtually shut down all crime in the city.
Wait, what? No, Spokane is also the meth capital of the world, and the police department's attempts at reversing this trend add up to...let's see...eight hundred divided by seven times six to the third, carry the one...EPIC FAIL.
Good jobs are impossible to find, here. There are "good outdoor activities" nearby, but all that really does is attract rich white kids to camp their asses on the South Hill and drink shitty canned beer while waiting for the next "good powder, man."
In short, Spokane is a nest of greasy rats breeding in a big, ugly valley with a serious air pollution problem. I hope it explodes.
Young Person: Pardon me, officer, but could you direct me to the railway station?
Policeman: HE'S HOSTILE! OPEN FIRE!
Meth Dealer No.1: Is the coast clear to transfer this massive amount of crystal methamphetamine to a storage facility in broad daylight?
Meth Dealer No.2: Oh, yes, quite. The police are ticketing jaywalkers again today.
Meth Dealer No.3: I love Spokane.
A city that californians love to live in for a year thinking it's great until they realize where is all the fake people, where is the crap consumerism. Why the hell is this not california. They then decide to move back to california. In all honesty spokane is not super exciting we are actually very moderate when it comes to politics very rarely do you get bible thumpers or extremist hippies. We like to shoot down the middle of the road. We went 50.1 percent or something like that in favor of obama so you can tell like I said down the road.
Oh and did I mention like to move here and then complain about it
Californian: God I love spokane!
Californian: God get me the hell out of here where is my coat, great someone shit on the coats
I was born here. And for all you other people with your definitions on how bad this place is.. go slob on a knob. cheese and rice. ha. Spokane has amazing weather. awesome festivities. Nice people. Dick's hamburgers. ZIPS. Great malls. The gondolas. Gnar river. Those cool vines that crawl up the walls along the freeway. silverwood is a hop skip and a jump away. River Front Park! I mean come on people! sure they have a meth problem and every other drug problem but what city doesnt have a few crackheads running around...or hundreds. The tiny hick towns in MT. and WY. and all the other states with low pop. but guess what i'm sure they're some tweakers even there. So grow a pair, and enjoy spokansas for what it really is!
Dude #1: What are you doing this weekend?
Dude#2: I'm going to spokane to do all sorts of wicked cool things, not complain about the drug problem, and get on with my life!
