Again, we enter like gods

I know why the caged ceiling no longer has birds.

Not to be all melodramatic about it, but it can never hurt to repeat great quotes. One of the Bus’s favorites is this doozy from Vincent Scully: “We used to enter the city like gods, now we scurry in like rats,” which was in reference to the painful destruction of New York’s Penn Station.

Luckily, in this corner of the state, we’re going in the opposite direction: to whit, the ongoing renovation of Seattle’s King Street Station hit an awesome milestone recently, with the removal of the lowered ceiling, and the revealing, finally, of the original, ornate, gorgeous ceiling.

Many, many more pictures to be found here, check them out, and appreciate the excellent outcomes of the public process!
