Condos & Cranes

A BRIEF RANT // BY SHAN FOISY

A Brief Rant / Shan Foisy

2 months ago, I could see the Space Needle from my office window. I liked it. It made me feel connected to a city and a legacy- not just this neighborhood atop a hill. I have yet to get overly up in arms about all the development and change happening around here. It scares me, but I know cities change and evolve just like people. Seattle is a living, breathing creature. That said- when I popped my head out the window for some fresh air this morning and saw my view was covered with cranes and condos - I was pissed. I want my fucking Needle back.
