According to the SPD Blotter, a Volkswagen Passat was traveling south on the bridge at 6:45 p.m. when it was hit mid-span by a Toyota MR2 that was traveling north. The Toyota crossed the center line and collided with the Passat.
Both drivers were treated at...
The Christina Choi Little Library is now installed on the south side of Louisa street just East of Lake Union Mail. Christina was Eastlake-raised, Eastlake-schooled, an Eastlake restaurant owner (Nettletown), neighbor and friend. Those responsible for building, painting and installing remain unidentified. Thank them with your use of her library.
On Wednesday January 9th, the steering committee for the Districts Now campaign voted to unsplit Eastlake. In its original October 2012 launch announcement, Eastlake was split down its middle between the Roosevelt and Capitol Hill districts at Lynn Street. Thanks to the strong and positive campaigning of many Eastlakians, Districts Now agreed with our reasoning and shifted the boundary to unify Eastlake within the Roosevelt district.
The Districts Now campaign, the proposal...

If you ride a Metro bus between Eastlake and downtown, you noticed a change starting a week ago: Buses now stay on Eastlake rather than going down Fairview after they pass the Eastlake and Fairview intersection.
The change is temporary and is related to the construction on Mercer Street in south Lake Union. Mercer is now a two-way street and Fairview is temporarily restricted to one lane northbound. This temporary reroute is expected to last for four to six months, according to Metro....
UPDATE: This event is now sold out.
ORIGINAL POST: If you've always wondered what it's like to live on a houseboat you'll be able to find out during the annual Seattle Floating Homes Tour from noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 9.
The event will feature 12 floating homes on the Eastlake side of Lake Union. Tickets are $25 and are available at Brown Paper Tickets. The event usually sells out so early purchase is recommended. Tickets include electric shuttle boat service between each end of the tour. You can also walk to each home and do the tour in any order. ...
It seems like a small thing, but in the context of busy urban lives the convenience of a neighborhood mailbox can be very important. An Eastlake mailbox that had been removed is back and neighbors are pleased.
The blue U.S. Postal Service mailbox at the corner of E. Lynn and Minor E. is one of the few left in the neighborhood. When it was removed earlier this summer to make way for a new curb cut, neighbor Phyllis Hatfield became concerned. She lives nearby and uses the box frequently. Other mailboxes in Eastlake, including one on the west side of Eastlake in the 2800 block, have been removed in recent years to save money....
Hard to believe the summer is almost over. Labor Day is this coming Monday so it must be true.
Will your Eastlake business be open on Monday? If so, what hours will you be open and are you planning anything special? Please post your details in the comments below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll post the list later this week.
Have a great holiday!

Eastlake's Craig Etheridge, a 5-year resident in the 2600 Block of Boylston Avenue, won his 2nd Bicycle Messenger World Championship in Chicago this weekend. His first was won in Guatemala in 2010.
Craig has pedaled the streets of Seattle working for KNR Couriers since 2004.
A 40-foot paddle boat docked at Fairview Avenue E. and Fairview Avenue N. took on water Thursday (Aug. 9) night and sank.
Seattle Fire Department spokesperson Kyle Moore says firefighters were called to the dock at 11:28 p.m. Thursday after receiving reports that the boat was taking on water. Engine 22, Engine 4, ladder 4, Engine 36 and Patrol 4 went to the scene.
When firefighters arrived they found the boat partly submerged and listing 45 degrees to the port side. After 40 minutes of effort by firefighters, the boat continued to list and control of it was turned over to the Coast Guard.
Moore says the estimated dollar loss on the boat was $100,000.
Eastlake residents came out last evening (Tuesday, Aug. 7) to enjoy three Night Out block parties, two on Franklin and one on Minor. That's the most Night Out events I've seen in the three years I've been writing for Eastlake Ave.
Neighbors gathered in the 2600 block of Franklin (between Roanoke and Edgar), the 2300 block of Franklin (between Lynn and Louisa) and in a driveway just off the street in the 2200 block of Minor. There were barbecues going at all three locations and more food than you could ever hope to eat....

Tuesday evening's incessant thump-a-thon carried on prevailing winds hard into Eastlake was just a little too much for me. This morning's e-mailed noise complaint has the SPD North Precinct and Harbor Patrol communicating. So next time the drum circles break out, please don't feel like your accoustical deportation to Boreo has to last until the Gas Works drummers wear out. The cops (non-emergency line) should be helpful enforcing the repetitive noise provisions of the Noise Ordinance which are posted at the park.

In case you've been wondering, Eastlake won't be affected by the current garbage haulers' strike in Seattle.
That's because Eastlake, as well as the rest of central and northeast Seattle, are serviced by CleanScapes. The strike involves unionized workers for Waste Management, which serves other parts of the city. You can see the affected areas on this map from the city's website.
According to a...
The signs are popping up all over Eastlake: Yellow, letter-sized notices about a new development on Franklin Avenue E.:
39 New Residents
NO NEW PARKING
No Neighborhood Review
No Neighborhood Input
No Land Use Action Sign
The notice ends by noting that: “These building are permanent and Eastlake will suffer for a long time.”
The development in question will replace a house at 2371 Franklin Ave. E. The official city permit for the project says it contains five units, but neighbors note that it will actually have 39 individual units grouped around common kitchens on each floor (a basement and four other floors, with one kitchen on each floor). ...
