The New York Times’ 36 Hours In Seattle is centered mostly on Capitol Hill and the up and coming South Lake Union area, which is right next to Capitol Hill. It includes Volunteer Park Cafe, which is just a couple blocks from our house in “one of Seattle’s oldest and prettiest neighborhoods.”

This reminds me, we just found out from one of the children of the previous owner of our house that Greg Nickels, the previous Mayor of Seattle, grew up right next door to our house.
