    Shout out to West Seattle produce owner! He donates the space & water nearly every weekend for some community organization fund raiser. Very generous!

    I was so thrilled to see the original facade of this old building, and is that tree branches mixed in with the bricks and mortar, I wish though that business owners would leave the original store fronts exposed instead of covering them up.

    West Seattle produce is a peach for their community support!!

    The boarded up facade is adjacent to BE’s Restaurant just north of the junction. Does anyone remember what used to be there? What’s going in there next? Thanks!

    pibal, thanks for addressing my only question about the photo, where/what is this wood facade? I was hoping someone besides me would ask/answer

Sorry, comment time is over.
