A Short Walk Through SoDo

(other things I saw this morning)

SoDo is an interesting part of Seattle, in that it’s a bit of a bridge between our blue and white collar industries. It’s also home to many businesses both large and small, and if there’s something you can’t find up in the city then you could probably find it down here.

The giant cranes used to move shipping containers on and off cargo ships tower over the neighborhood, and the area also serves as a stopping point for the trains that run along the edge of the city. Both the port and railroads are incredibly vital to the city.

Do you recognize these eyes?

One of the random stores that dot the area. This particular one is probably the best kitchen/restaurant supply store in town.

A surplus store, of just about everything.

Bars show up at seemingly weird places that you wouldn’t expect here.

The last stop before heading back up to the city was the new Macrina Bakery location that opened up earlier this year. It hosts its wholesale operations for many of Seattle’s restaurants and coffee shops that depend on their pastries and breads, and it also has a small cafe area.
