WEST SEATTLE SCENE: In case you get lost on Pigeon Point …

… a new reminder of where you are, when you’re at 21st/Andover. The photo was sent by longtime Pigeon Point community advocate Pete Spalding. It’s just uphill from where Pigeon Point has sported many signs over the years, like the one in this story.

    Are there pigeons in Pigeon Point?

      They’re pointing out their pigeons there.

      Not really. There used to be pigeons when there was a grain factory or loading area (?) down where Salty’s is. Anyone know the full story?  I hear they were tasty, grain-fed pigeons that would roost here and eat there.

      It’s a well known conspiracy: there are no pigeons on Pigeon Point. It was originally supposed to be called “Banana Slug Point” but a local realtor suggested that this might be a hard sell for the ubiquitous flat roofed yuppie boxes popping up everywhere on the hill, and proceeded to name the area after famed Hollywood actor of the 1930’s and 40’s, Walter Pidgeon, but misspelled it. Moral of the story: Don’t hire dyslexic real estate agents who dislike slugs, words to live by…

    So, a few months ago I filled out the paperwork for a mural in this spot with the city that ties in the native community in with the feeling of neighborhood unity.  Was hoping for design approval soon, but if this is the quality level of art that you feel represents your area then I am not going to fight it. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
