A bit of Shoreline history: North City & North City Lounge

Some info from the "Historic Sites" map of North King County:

The third oldest business district in Shoreline, North City was named in a 1940s contest held by business owners to give a defined name to their area. The district sprung up along the "main drag" of 15th NE in the late 1920s in response to the many homes being built in neighboring areas such as Lago Vista and Monte Vista. 

The North City Lounge at 176th was constructed in 1928 as a store and gas station.
