    Seattle's classic street skateboarding spots
    All things urban recreation, from reinventing the sidewalk to innovations in children's playground design. As wonderful as skate parks are, modern skateboarding was founded on a radical rethinking of urban architecture. Using parts of the built environment that were not meant to be played on as playthings is an incredibly freeing experience.

“One Victory for All” Celebrated by Many Generations and Cultures

What about the American war heroes? They were not forgotten. Everyone who took part in the march carried a red carnation to the Garden of Remembrance, a World War II memorial adjacent to Benaroya Hall (2nd Avenue at University Street).

    "One Victory for All" Celebrated by Many Generations and Cultures - Aging & Disability Services for Seattle & King County
    For some 10 years, I've shared a celebratory meal with a small group of Russian-speaking World War II veterans and their families on Victory Day, celebrating the anniversary of the surrender of Nazi Germany to Allied forces.
