The Summer of Belltown’s Discontent

Another week, another disturbing violent incident in Belltown: this one an (apparently unprovoked) beating near 2200 First Ave. I’m in that area from time to time myself, and although there’s occasionally some colorful activity near what seems to be a halfway house in the immediate vicinity, it wasn’t a block I was particularly worried about before now. Between Mcleod, Txori and the new Bad Juju Lounge, the area has a lot going for it beyond what many love to hate about Belltown, but now it appears some glancing over ones shoulder is called for, sadly.

    That, or as the article indirectly suggests: padded sidewalks or helmet laws. It’s not the punch, it’s the fall.
