Picture of the Day
June 22, 2022
capitol hill is the greenwich
village of seattle (tho greenwich
village is no longer the greenwich
village of nyc). home to seattle's first
millionaire's row, its leafy boulevards and
mansions earned a nod from raymond chandler.
starting in the '50s, demographic shifts resulted
in low rents and dilapidated houses that attracted
counterculture folk and "the hill" gained prominence
as a gayborhood. very little is cheap nowadays and it's
thoroughly re-gentrified but vestiges of its activist legacy
persist and it's still a haven for eccentrics where sidewalk
celebrations like this street corner banquet for craig chambers'
birthday don't seem out of place and adria garcia's impeccably
Indian Summer vintage store doubles as a safe space.
