Public toilet no longer?

Our public vessel of crime, er toilet, may be going away. It sounds like a reasonable plan for the city given the $800K yearly maintenance costs and the fact that they aren’t exactly being used as intended.

Actually, given that ours is located in the lot of a vacant building, I’m not sure how Seattle City intended it to be used in the first place. There isn’t much of a reason to walk past it unless you’re on your way somewhere else… a somewhere else with a nicer bathroom to boot. (Note: Excluding bathrooms in bars on Pike/Pine.)

At first I was concerned that taking away this public bathroom would cause our alleys to become bathrooms instead. But then I remembered that our alleys are already bathrooms… specifically the one behind Half Price Books where I see people defecating at least once a month in broad daylight.

Maybe this will push the crime to the public toielts in Cal Anderson?

It's all coming down

Haven't seen with mine own eyes yet (took the 12 to work this a.m.), but received this St. Paddy's day note from neighbor Jerry:
It's all coming down. I watched them tear down the fa├žade of Manray a few hours ago. And they’re still at it. I can’t wait for them to tear down that ugly building on the corner. I’ll be cheering for that.

The end begins.

Tiffany's on the hill.

I haven't had a chance to take a photo of it yet, but the old Wingdome has a fresh coat of paint.

And if it hasn't already jumped out at you, think Tiffany's.

I don't know if that corner lot would be the best location for an upscale jewelry store. I hope they choose to add a second coat.
