  •  I feel the same about Seattle. (2+ / 0-)

    The Seattle I "knew" back in the 70's, 80's and early 90's is mostly gone.  Once the "People's View" (high rise waterfront road Alaskan Way Viaduct) is torn down for the tunnel they're replacing it with (to give developers more land to build "stuff" on) it will be gone for good. I'm glad I got to experience Seattle before it started looking like just another big city wanna be.

    •  Same thing with Portland.... (0+ / 0-)

      ....before the Pearl and the South Waterfront (So What?) and the invasion of the hipsters into Northeast, turning Mississippi Ave. and Alberta St. into Little Williamsburg to spend their trust funds and drink PBR and smoke American Spirits like they were cool or something.

      9-11 changed everything? Well, Katrina changed it back.
