Seattle, founded in the 1850's and named after [[Chief Seattle]], has a total estimated city population of 572,600 and a metropolitan population of almost 3.8 million (2004). It is sometimes referred to as the "Rainy City," the "Gateway to Alaska," "Queen City" and "Jet City" (due to the heavy influence of [[Boeing]]). Its official nickname is "the Emerald City." Seattle is known as the home of grunge music, and has a reputation for heavy [[coffee]] consumption. Seattle was also the site of the 1999 meeting of the World Trade Organization. During the meeting the city was shut down by anti-globalization demonstrators. Seattle residents are known as '''Seattleites'''.
