As I was walking through Seattle downtown, I realized that underneath these high rises lay rich culture and a classic appeal.
Most of the buildings have stood there over a century and especially the ones closer to the waterfront.
When one speaks of Seattle downtown, the most famous words would be Columbia Towers and Space Needle, but there is more to this place than just that.
Most of the streets in Seattle downtown boast of classic restaurants serving inter-continental cuisine. Their aroma fills one’s nostrils even at a distance from the restaurant.
The small lanes, large sidewalks and buses powered by electric cables from above are how I would put the ground-scape.
Each building has its own unique architecture. The ones close to the waterfront being the most unique. Sloping roads and small alleys are the norm here.
The most famous landmark here is “Pike Place Market”, which puts up quite a show in the early morning hours when tons of fish (of all shapes and sizes) are thrown (but they slide) on huge slabs of ice. This is the place that led to the fish motivational principle in today’s corporate world!!
