Brayden, your character studies are one of my favorite Slog features. More, please.

agree with @1, this should be a weekly entry, if not already. side note: that is a trippy-ass photo... "yaletown sofa" seems to almost be hovering over his head, halo-like.

Look for Character Study almost every Monday morning. You can also click on the green "Character Study" tag to see the entire series.

@2 - I think it is apartments. It just has hotel in the name?

Great photo -- the B&W, the framing in the doorway... very haunting

Is the Character Study in the print edition? I'd start picking up the paper again, if so. Thanks, Brayden.

Nope, it's a Slog column.

good little series, good interviews, interesting folks and very nice pics.

when that place is gone, and becomes sound view condos, this little gem of an interview will live on.

I heart the Character Studies. They are fab on Slog and would be great in the print edition as well. This one might be my favorite.

Actually, Denny, quite a few places in that area rent rooms: Hotel Alexis, The W, The Inn at the Market, Hotel 1000, Hotel Monaco.

Fuck, someone tear that shit hole down and build high priced rental units that will start at $1700.00 for a studio! And that riff raff get out of downtown!

My 19th birthday (1992) was spent in the corner apartment on the third floor, and a week later I did the strongest LSD imaginable there. I spent a few hours watching patron after patron coming out of the Lusty Lady, every damn one with their hands in their pockets.
Thanks for the memories.

Hey, doesn't somebody need to tell Denny that "yuppie" is an obsolete word?

Unless he's using it accurately, of course. If anybody in that neighborhood in Seattle matches the description lately.

Just because it's inevitable doesn't mean it doesn't suck... The sound we're hearing is the sound of original Seattle dwindling away....

Great piece, Brayden... Thank you...
