Check out the ridge line on that roof! And the peeling siding. Not all abodes in Belltown are sleek newer condos and lofts. Since yesterday was International Talk Like a Pirate Day, I thought the Jolly Roger in the window of this late 1800s building above the Jamaican coffee house/bar would be fun to show you, matey. This scene is more like the Belltown of twenty years ago when artists and working folk could find low rents and things were substantially more rough edged but colorful.

I had to double check a couple of times to realise it was one building - it does look like the coffee house is an entire different picture. Love it!

I love the juxtaposition of the lime-green hybrid Insight (that is what that is, right) with the funky building.
