Take a look at this, sweet people. You've seen this shot before. It usually looks like this: That's right, all those Mt. Fuji cherry trees have been cut down. Two days ago, they were still standing; today they're gone, hauled away, dead. They were around 40 years old from the look of them and originally planted to help sell Cadillacs. I guess they're developing the lot. But did they really have to cut them all down? This is really an awful thing. Every spring, they would just explode with blossoms. Like this: They were beautiful trees, but now there's no bringing them back. Look, I'm all for developing the holy living hell out of Belltown, but jeez, there are limits. These trees were neighborhood treasures. With absolutely no one caring for them, they managed to thrive. They put on a great show every spring. But not any more. Well, nice move, guys. Thanks a million. Now Belltown is just that much uglier.
