What they’re saying about Capitol Hill Station: NYT ignores, Seattle transit 1975, Stranger cover, room for ‘giant crowds’

IMG_3180

It probably says something about the media that the opening of a Starbucks roastery on Capitol Hill got more national coverage than the hype this week leading up to the opening of Capitol Hill Station and U-Link.

The New York Times, Washington Post, and Los Angels Times probably see the opening as a major extension of Seattle’s existing light rail infrastructure.

We’re biased but we’re pretty sure this is more than an extension. Saturday’s opening represents a major shift in how the line can be used with the University of Washington and Broadway and Pike/Pine now within its reach. Maybe the trend-highlighting, feature stories are coming next week. Or maybe they’re not.

You can see what CHS has to say about it all here in our LIGHT RAIL 3/19 coverage. Here is what the other locals are saying about it.

“The New York Times, Washington Post, and Los Angels Times probably see the opening as a major extension of Seattle’s existing light rail infrastructure.”

Or The New York Times, Washington Post, and Los Angels Times don’t know about our light rail system and don’t fukking care. Yes, this is big news for us, but Capitol Hill is not the center of the universe.
