We're moving to Seattle. Tell me everything.

(Anonymous because still negotiating.)
Us: One of us is an academic. The other is a non-academic. 1 preschool aged kid and 2 cats. Used to living in very large and medium sized cities. Some of us are quite outdoorsy. We are all fairly crunchy. We like being walkable to stuff, especially groceries.
Temporarily: We're fortunate to be in temporary housing in Green Lake for approximately a year. We're also on waiting lists for many preschools (vetted by future colleagues) in that neighborhood.
But I don't know ANYTHING about Seattle. Please explain how this city works (layout, demographics, financially, traffic, attitude, pace of life, EVERYTHING.) Alternatively, books/websites/blogs would be helpful as well.
Eventually we'll want to start looking into schools/neighborhoods to look at houses to buy, but that will be a future question.
