Waterfront for Dummies: Knute Berger's Plea For Kitsch Conservation
An excellent contribution today to the city-wide ponder over the future of Seattle's waterfront: Knute Berger's "Mossback" blog today on Crosscut. Our editor at large—who is also a regular Crosscut contributor and the writer-in-residence at the tippy top of the Space Needle—is hoping our city will resist the urge to tidy things up too much as we redefine that crucial public space. Will the re-imagined waterfront be at cross-purposes with the Seattle Center? I love Knute's 10,000-foot view of the subject—so much so that I can forgive him for loving the idea of a waterfront Ferris wheel.
