Seattle Skyline

Once upon a time . . .

The changing face of Seattle.

For two years in a row, Seattle was named the crane capital of America. It plays host to the most tower cranes in the country. Only this year did it fall below 58 tower cranes, surrendering its domination.

That’s a lot of construction.

I wanted to mark the moment in time, because the skyline won’t look this way forever.

Until next week.


About Fannie Cranium

Writing since she could first hold a pen, Tracy Perkins formed her alter ego, "Fannie Cranium" at the suggestion of her husband. Tracy understands smiling makes people wonder what she’s been up to.

    Does it make you sad? I rarely drive past the ever-changing Austin crane-filled skyline because it depresses me. I want to scream, “Stop already!” But it never will. Seattle and Austin have been desirable cities for so many years, and the cranes will keep craning. Which reminds me of an old They Might Be Giants song, “They’ll Need A Crane…”

    • It makes me sad that all of our old favorite haunts are being demolished and replaced with something new and trendy. I haven’t been to Austin yet, but I can imagine.

      I will have to look up the “They Might Be Giants” song, it’s not popping into my head. I’m guessing its in a dark corner in my brain under a bunch of other dusty vinyls . . .
