under a rock

June 1, 2014

 

went to a party last night on the 7th floor deck between the two towers of the via 6 building at 6th & Lenora and couldn't help but think of my favorite gravel pit. the photos above may help jog your memory to what 6th & Lenora used to look like.  this little par-tay was a glimpse into what Seattle has become   is becoming    will be     overlooking all the construction for the Amazon triple towers and the giant transparent  golf ball plaza.

Lane Kagay asked recently if I was a caveman. I am a retro-grouch luddite caveman and I've been living under a rock for the past 4 years. this slice of Seattle does not excite me or entice me.

a fuddy duddy curmudgeon but don't get me wrong I'm a big fan of urban density as it beats the shit out of urban sprawl and six lane roads in the suburbs with 6 minute waits in the left turn lanes. it kind of makes me queasy but I applaud Amazon for infilling the gaps in the city and not choosing to build a corporate campus in Issaquah or a monumental spread in Moses Lake.
