Countdown to light rail: 72 days

It’s time for my “countdown to light rail” post of the week (see previous one here.) There are only 72 days left until we can catch a train from downtown to Tukwila. And about seven years until the Capitol Hill station opens. Demolition on that location is underway. When I stopped by yesterday the only building standing was the boarded-up Jack in the Box at Broadway and Denny. Had never eaten there. Too bad. I like Jack in the Box.
My fellow Seattle Times blogger Melissa Allison, from Coffee City, gave me a heads up about the demolition. She recently posted a photo of the Vivace building, which is gone by now.
If you want to suggest interesting places I should document with my drawings please send me an e-mail. You can also put a red flag on my Google map so I keep them in mind as I roam the city.
