Here were many fine books, private press books and books about books. Just along 1st Avenue from here is the underground Grand Central Arcade, with two used bookstores, Arundel and Newberry, again both worth a visit.
The shady Pioneer and Occidentale Squares near are a welcome bit of greenery in this area, with interesting totem poles and wood sculptures.
Not forgetting Waterfall Park, created in recognition of the United Parcel Service (UPS)
In the afternoon we headed up to the University of Washington, where there are many fine shops and cafes. Here we spent a long time in the University Bookshop on University Way. This, like many university bookshops in the USA, is a mecca for bibliophiles.
