Lots of people have visited Seattle but most are here for a few days and never see what the city is really like. In the old days I’d tell you about the Puget Sound, the ferries, the mountains, the rain and drizzle… but these days the most iconic site in Seattle is construction and cranes.
The first photo shows one the gazillion building sites in Seattle. According to one report there are 58 cranes currently operating in Seattle – the next biggest use in the U.S. is Los Angeles with 40.
As a native the growth is absolutely stunning. Turn around and an hold house or VA hall is gone and there is a huge hole in the ground. I miss some of the old buildings and restaurants but overall the growth is great.
