West Seattle is a neighborhood of Seattle.
The neighborhood is on Duwamish Peninsula, on Puget Sound.
Former and merged names include:
· New York Alki
· Alki
The area's first non-native residents, under the leadership of Arthur Denny settled here in 1851. Almost all of that original party moved shortly thereafter to present-day downtown.

In 1902, West Seattle incorporated as a city. Five years later, Seattle annexed the community.

The state legislature, in the mid-1990s, passed a bill that would have allowed West Seattle to secede from Seattle proper. The governor, however, vetoed the bill.

Local festivals include:
  • West Seattle Summerfest - July 13-15, 2007
  • Arts In Nature Festival - Aug. 25-26, 2007
  • Seattle Music Fest at Alki Beach - Aug. 10-12, 2007
