Fish Market
View From Hotel Room Pike's Place Market Crab  
Cashed in some Hyatt coupons for a weekend in Seattle. Weather report: high 40 / low 34, icy rain... Seattle is famous for its fish market at Pike's Place. Inside the market place, vendors present the catch of the day.  
Space Needle and EMP
Space Needle Monorail
EMP & Space Needle
The 605 ft Space Needle is Seatlle's icon -- a leftover from the 1962 World's Fair. A monorail takes visitors from downtown to the Space Center. The monorail goes right through the Experience Music Project (EMP). Paul Allen dropped a few hundred million of his fortune to create this interactive museum.
The building was designed by Frank O. Gehry. The curvaceous surface is covered with sheet metal panels.
