The seedy side of Sunset Bowl

While we await the demolition of Sunset Bowl, we’ve noticed the back side of the building along 56th St. is covered in graffiti and littered with trash.

We’ve seen on several occasions that this is becoming a popular hangout for Ballard’s transient population, but we’ve also noticed Seattle Police officers hanging out in the Sunset Bowl parking lot at night keeping an eye on things. By the way, the next design review meeting for the new development was scheduled for Monday night, but it has been canceled and will be rescheduled.

Earlier: Preview of the proposed building replacing Sunset Bowl, and the design review board’s concerns that it consumes too much of the lot.

Today, 31 January 2009 (tomorrow is 2010), this corner of Sunset Bowl looks no different than the photo taken in August 2008.
