Busy Morning in the International District

Busy International District

Immediately south of the Pioneer Square neighborhood and east of the stadiums begins a most colorful area now known as the International District. Once upon a time it was called Chinatown. The newer name reflects that people with recent family roots in many different countries now call this neighborhood home.

I love that they changed the name; International District sounds like an interesting place indeed.

I always love to see your photos!

You've been tagged! See my Tuesday post for details.

Seattle has such cool architecture... that rounded building in the middle is fascinating to look at.

Considering your Senior topic, it sounds like a fact that would interest you. :-) Thanks so much for your visits to SDP and kind comments. I will try to post 8 things tomorrow and tag 8 folks.

Celine, Thanks, I was thinking that the roof line reminded me of the roof of the Municipal Building a little (on my Flickr site recently) in that the roof is transparent and curves downward. I wonder how hot the cubies in those offices become with all that sunlight?
