You've slogged on this before, I think. Any thoughts on perhaps acting in a proactive manner by contacting the US Bank brass and pleading your case?
A slingshot? How about using them to knock the beaks off those damn crows that swoop down on you in that area. CAW!
what, don't you like density when it's across the street from your house? more eyes on the street!
Density, yes. Blinding lights, no.
It's true, that sign is blinding as you drive by. Corporate signage is a horrible thing.
Gee Christopher, does your building have any other open apts that are not staring right at the US Bank signage? That would have to be a living hell, unless you are tweaked out all night long.
omg it's glowing, it must be a bomb!
Slingshots can be had at Target, Fred Meyer, or any big general retailer. Look in the sporting goods section in the glass case. Tell them you want to chase squirrels out of your bird feeder.
christopher, you should organize some of your neighbors and write a letter to the bank manager or even have a sit-down with him/her...
oh, go call the waaaaaaahhhmbulance.
Just think U SPANK! every time you look at the brightly glowing sign that Seattle is getting denser. And then imagine living above a bar/dance club on the Castro, and sleep well without any crack heads screaming all night long outside your window in the Tenderloin.
write's right. Plus you've got your bully pulpit to hold over their heads.
Yeah Christopher, the Bully Pulpit, just look how well that has worked for GWB? I would just sue them. Make up some sort of mental disorder (that you have already preferably) and say that the lights caused it.
I think it looks pretty.

#11: Why go all the way to the Tenderloin when you can get screen crack/meth heads down on Summit or Belmont?

while you're at it, why not take out the street lights, traffic signals, and reroute the major thoroughfares? you have to admit that choosing to live on Broadway and complaining about light pollution is more than a little silly.
at least it's not one of the five bars within a block of my house ...
I hear Nebraska is nice.
What would you prefer, crack heads on the street corner asking for change or ultra bright corporate signage. Wait, I guess you have both...
I think most of those posting haven't seen this sign. It's really unbelievably bright; about three times brighter than anything else on the street, and that's saying a lot.
They don't need to get rid of the sign, just dim it a bit from midnight to 6am?
Yeah, that thing is so f****ing bright and it's competing with the offending American Apparel brightness catticorner.
nebraska. is. not. nice.
Frizzelle: I hear Monroe is a nice place to live, and they don't have as many bright bank signs.
