Capitol Hill Community Post | David Schomer’s Urban Cycling

...late. It’s a nearly perfect bike trap. And, it happens all the time descending Pike and Pine. Go very slowly around the donkeys if they are stacked up...

    Capitol Hill Community Post | David Schomer's Urban Cycling
    Nothing beats a bicycle for urban transportation. A bike is fast and small, never boxed in, and you park it right in front of wherever it is you were going. You smell the air and feel the weather, lungs and legs pumping. It is blissfully quiet and ultra-cheap to own and operate.

Price gouging at the ‘Western Avenue combine’ led to the opening of Pike Place Market

...stone was decreed too soft for the construction of Seattle’s main post office at Third Avenue and Union Street — Colman purchased the lot for pennies on the dollar. Many locals will best remember it...

    Price gouging at the 'Western Avenue combine' led to the opening of Pike Place Market
    The market opened in 1907, a year or two after this 'Then' photo was taken, in an area to the south, where middlemen operated. They were known as 'sharks' by farmers and grocers. Share story THE VIEW HERE is looking east on Marion Street, across Western Avenue, and we estimate the Webster and Stevens Studio photographer snapped our "Then" photo in 1905 or 1906.

“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. For decades before that, I observed-from the sidelines-Soviet and later Russian military parades commemorating that surrender.

    5 Brunch Spots for Bottomless Mimosas
    Now that it's officially, though waveringly, summertime in Seattle, we've arrived at a few truths we hold to be self-evident: The rainy afternoons aren't going anywhere, all the nearby hiking trails are as thoroughly congested as your pollen-averse nasal cavity, and drinking in the morning is more socially acceptable than ever.
