It was a simpler time on Capitol Hill back in 2007. During those gleeful pre-recession years CHS was still in its infancy and you could get $1 pull tabs at Benson’s Grocery (although history does tend to repeat itself). Relive it all and watch the neighborhood transform before your eyes with Google Maps new feature that allows you to walk through seven years of street view images.
There are some real gems, including watching the transformation of Broadway from a low-rise, small business street to a mixed-use haven with a big hole where the Capitol Hill light rail station will go. Other fun finds:
- Watch Capitol Hill parking get more expensive before your eyes
- Make this block of Broadway disappear
- 10th and Pike gets a facelift
