In the latest episode of The Urbanist’s podcast, reporter Ray Dubicki and I talk about what’s going on these days in Downtown Seattle. Ray recently toured some friend guests from LA around Downtown, and he shares what it was like to experience Downtown from an out-of-towner’s perspective in a post-Covid world. We also talk about Pike Place Market, safety, homelessness, why downtowns are great places to live, and what the future might hold for Seattle’s Downtown neighborhoods.
