Pioneer Square

How Pioneer Square Has Changed

I was downtown today in my old stomping ground in Pioneer Square.  I used to work in this area for a young start-up.  A few of the companies have left the area but considering the hard times and all most of the ones I visited are still there. Our office was across the street from Safeco Field and it was quite an enjoyable place.  Before that we were in the artist area just a block away I would say.  One thing I really miss is lunch.  There was so many great options.  Usually it was Subway but their used to be a quick little pizza place (sold by the slice) which was convenient.  Inside, they had an upstairs area with some nice windows (looking down on the area) and it was quit.  you could just go up there and get away for an hour.  That place was closed up and I can’t even remember its name.  It was almost across the street from Trinity Nightclub.  To get to Subway, we would walk through the brick park (which still stinks) and is full or the homeless. There used to be a bathroom there but it appears that has now been removed.

Other than that is seems about the same and that is pretty impressive considering the hardship many are facing in many of the cities.
