Seattle Scenery: Views from the Space Needle

by CraiSBower January 2014 - last edited September

Every great city possesses a compass, a single location from which to gather perspective on the metropolis and its environs. We ascend the Eiffel Tower when in Paris and climb the Empire State Building to take in the New York City landscape. In Seattle, a trip up the Space Needle reveals our finest vista. But what exactly do we see? Here’s an album of snapshots we’ve captured from the observation deck, 520-feet above sea level.
