Had a little chat this morning with construction workers on 40th greenbelt–stair rehab project. They’ve excavated the old stairs and we’ll soon have a new poured concrete staircase with new handrail. Stairs will be 6ft 10inches wide (the standard stair width of Seattle, or of something)–that’s double-wide what the old one was.
So, even though it seems like no one in the city or rest of Wallingford proper cares much about us in Wallingfaux (98105 zip, 98103 taxes/real estate flyers/post office, best neighbors around), we’ll soon have a much nicer and WAY less creepy staircase to take us down to Ivar’s or to our little secret waterfront park.
Up with the 98105, down with creepy stairs!
