cept it suggests a neighborhood cohesion which isn't there...they start at madison which is still cap hill-ish and end around yesler which is straight up CD.
Well now, obviously, you need signs throughout the city directing people to 12th Avenue, so they know where it is.
They left out Bitch and Flirt and Snooze.
@1 It's called Squire Park.
I recommend you go to a community council meeting organized by Bill Zosel and see what the latest info it. Very cool info.
Except that is an old link and the website is in serious need of some help. sorry.
And yet, somehow, they still have no real power at City Hall, or the County and State legislatures, while the other neighborhoods do ...
pretty banners are nice, tho.
This is right up there with "West Edge".
That looks like the banner to a pre-school.
12th was very cool. Those banners are truly awful and make it look like some sort of corporate theme park. Dumb.
If one must have banners, how about just 12th Avenue and a nice design and no slogan.
this reminds me of a banner campaign that went up in buffalo when i lived there. all along elmwood avenue, the banners read "forever elmwood." street-themed banners are always funny.
More like 'walk, walk, walk, walk some more because there are no places to stop and hang out at.'
What the fuck? All that's missing are "finger paint" and "nap".
What about: "Eat meals that are not as good as you hoped they'd be. Buy an expensive condo right before a bust. See cop cars parked behind razor wire. Check out a movie with the screen that's up too high."
I think Reuters had an article that 12th Ave was the hottest street in the World or maybe it was the Universe:
For a NIght
For a Week
For a Lifetime
It is a mesmerizing banner. Highly effective.
Hypnotoad would be more effective.
I was really hoping someone would come up with something more creative than that
at least it's accurate and non-offensive, unlike west edge or chenora.
Yeah, but Nappy's right, Hypnotoad would have been even better.
Wedgewood has banners up along 35th Ave NE and we all know how "vibrant" that strip is.
This ought to reassure the middle aged Bellevue-ians clogging the sidewalks on a Friday or Saturday night, that they are in the right place and give them an indication of the activities they should pursue. How helpful!
ALL GLORY TO THE HYPNOTOAD!
Theologians and scientists have long debated the existence of 12th Avenue. Now they can stop.
Squire Park, you can call a turd by any other name but it's turd, err, I mean the CD.
Well, it was Squire Park long before "the CD" was in existence, so I'd have to dispute that assertion @24 (disclosure: I too live in SP).
And speaking of Hypnotoad - ALL HAIL HYPNOTOAD! - I wonder how many people actually watch the entire 22 minute ep on the "Futurama" DVD?
And apparently Gomez hasn't been on 12th for a while, or he'd know there are now LOTS of places to "hang out" from Cafe Presse & Stumptown at the North end, all the way down to Saba at the South end.
Uh yes, there are 3 schools within 3 blocks of each other: Seattle University, Seattle Academy and The Photographic Center Northwest. And there's a daycare if you are still interested in fingerpaints and napping.
And it was called Squire Park WAY back. I don't remember seeing any of you at the community council meetings when the banners were being discussed and decided upon... back in 2003/4.
