Today, I went thru Rainier Ave about 1/2 mile to a mile North of Mt. Baker station (Central link light rail) I saw there was SO many graffati (spelling) Lot of even more run down buildings, lot of vegetation growing in anaboned buildings, etc. It looks almost like some big city ghetto area to me. Scary! I saw a brand new restaurant/club in a brand new building that was built about 2 years ago and now guess what? It looks awful with graffati all over it and all dirty and ulgy now, it's also out of business, too. Such a waste..... they even spray painted all over the signs at the entrance ramp to I-90 East. Wow, Seattle has changed a little bit this year. I don't remember seeing one of the worst ghetto areas since I lived in Washington state. The worst I've seen is in Oakland, CA area.
