No battle in this Seattle

Seattle, Washington, United States
Being a tourist, most places seem pretty sweet, but most of the time you miss goings-on liiiike how a local paper reckons of Seattle: "Soon it'll be a city composed of only the homeless and $150,000-earning, bike riding 35 year old tech managers. No thanks". Stat of the day, as of 2014: "Amazon is growing so quickly that it needs developers to build 30 new residential buildings in and around downtown Seattle, with at least 200 units each, just to accommodate its employees in the coming years." There's a lot more construction than in most American cities and about the same number of homeless downtown I.e. quite-a-lot. Its early history was kinda gross too.
