CHS Ink | Kelly’s arm

We met up with Kelly Verschueren, a University of Washington nursing student, near Seattle Central on Broadway. She chose to show us her “Keep Abortion Legal” tattoo that was done by Jeremy Decory at The Aorta Art Collective, above 11th Ave. Kelly says she chose the tattoo “in response to a breakup” while she was working at Planned Parenthood. “I had a boyfriend who asked if I could go a day without talking about abortion. I was like, ‘hmmm, no.’ Two weeks after we broke up, I got it, I’d been thinking about it anyway… It’s really important to me.” Kelly says the ink has brought positive response. “People maybe don’t want to fuck with someone who is ballsy enough to put the word abortion on their arm.”

First Look: With a line up E Madison, Westman’s Bagels and Coffee opens

A long line at Westman’s. The good news? Lines for “Seattle-style” doughnuts were shorter than usual Friday.

    First Look: With a line up E Madison, Westman's Bagels and Coffee opens
    Just down the Hill from Temple De Hirsch Sinai and 2,800 miles from Brooklyn, Westman's Bagels and Coffee opened for business Friday to a long line on a dark and drizzly morning in Seattle. CHS wrote here about the project and quest to create a Capitol Hill "morning culture" from small-space food and drink entrepreneur Monica Dimas and baker Molly Westman.

The Morning News: Amazon HQ2 Finds 20 Potential Suitors, There's a Lake in My Alley

I started here at 4th and Pine, just to the side of Abercrombie & Fitch. This fixture is bolted onto a small, covered ledge that might otherwise provide relief from the rain pic.twitter.com/2yhdjQ0ed1

Next I stopped by the Medical Dental building on 6th and Olive. The bus stop outside has these covered stops, but the benches are short and designed so they hang out from under the cover pic.twitter.com/20Sfn5ZBjr

Here is a bus stop on 4th and Pike, just across from the AT&T store. The only bench made for sitting isn't covered and has those edges to keep the surface from being uniform. I lost the pictures but under the awning are at least half a dozen leaning benches pic.twitter.com/B37xwGhdy4

What’s next for Seattle’s new era floating bike shares

It’s a bit of a chaotic test. They get dropped almost everywhere — some literally dropped, for real — and by the end of January, the first electric-assist versions will be on the streets of Seattle. With the city allowing the multi-colored “floating” companies to operate during a Wild West trial period, It’s not a question of whether Seattle will continue to have a bike share program, it’s just a question of what the final rules will be.

CHS Pics | On E Madison, a spirited defense of reproductive rights

A smaller than expected but spirited group gathered Saturday outside E Madison’s Planned Parenthood to counter ongoing demonstrations against the women’s health facility. CHS reported on the Seattle Clinic Defense actions that have come amid increasing national rhetoric against reproductive rights — though the organization that the group is trying to defend has officially discouraged counter-protests. Those who use the health services Planned Parenthood provides shouldn’t have to withstand demonstrations from outraged fundamentalists while they’re walking to and from the doctor, one clinic defender who CHS talked to about the efforts said. “Having something to do instead of just getting online has been really empowering for me,” she said.

Capitol Hill landmark-protected Galbraith House readied for demolition

It’s been a bit since CHS heard from neighborhood historian and preservationist John Fox. He’s moved off the Hill these days but we’ve learned to listen and take a look when he points us at a piece of Capitol Hill history. John wrote to us recently about a planned demolition at 17th Ave and Howell. Designated an official landmark in 2005, the Galbraith House/Seattle Mental Health building only had its exterior protected in the process. But the landmarks board decided recently to allow “no controls” on the building freeing landowner Sound Mental Health to move forward on its plans for the property. Those apparently include demolition — a permit to demolish the structure was issued on January 3rd. Preservationists have objected to the decision but work is already underway. The giant old house completed in 1904 for Seattle merchant James E. Galbraith and designed by the same architect as 15th Ave’s landmarked Gaslight Inn has been undergoing a salvage by Earthwise who have been nice enough to share some pictures.
