    That area has alway been a racial area of drugs, prostitution, and gambling.
    Seattle is getting desperate for good press now that it is a gay and drug capital.

  • ewww no way

    Omg that's complete lie… can't be the best. The place feels like a ghetto or some place in third world country. I never thought a place like this existed in seattle. The place is very dirty, unhygienic, and stinky and if you are lucky, you can spot a Rat playing on pile of garbage. IF you think its the best, why don't people start buying condos or start living their? Thanks people for making it so authentic and the BEST.
