Wallyhood Calendar: Hemp, Andrew Lee, and Chickens
Wallyhood - Tonight the Meaningful Movies covers industrial hemp with the movie Bringing it Home. The movie dates to 2013 though, and apparently in 2014 the farm bill made it so industrial hemp is now somewhat legalized too. If I remember correctly from college, hemp is the hippie farmer wonder material, kind of like what carbon nanotubes are […] Read more...

Mr Gyros Helps Turn East Wallingford into a Destination
Wallyhood - Mr Gyros is open and it is everything you'd hope for- economical, super tasty, and friendly. I asked why they chose the spot they did and they said it was small and they didn't want the overhead of a place with a lot of tables since that doesn't help them. The pita bread is really […] Read more...

Deja vu - Collision at Wallingford Ave N and N 39th St
Wallyhood - Monday morning while driving my kids to daycare, I saw the remnants of yet another accident. Wallyhood reader Stephanie also witnessed the aftermath. She writes: I was hoping you could do a story on the accident that happened this morning (around 8am) on the corner of 39th and Wallingford.  Looked like one person was going to […] Read more...

Pam's Kitchen May be Breaking The Curse
Wallyhood - I ate at Guadalajara when it was a dive bar and got the only vegetarian thing on the menu- refried beans that, when served, still had the can ripples on the side. The place was converted into a family Mexican restaurant with glass and wood carved tables, giving birth soon after to Selena's Guadalajara. Selena's […] Read more...

It's Spring in Seattle, There's a Couch on the Curb
Wallyhood - Peg Achterman shares her couchrage: Once it rains even one time – or the crows decide there is something tantalizing in there – or just one dog raises a leg. NO ONE WILL PICK IT UP. Could we just agree that one day is enough? And there are many many vans that will pick up. Please? It's just […] Read more...

Accidents at Wallingford and N 41st Street
Wallyhood - On Thursday April 2nd, I was driving on N 42nd Street towards Wallingford Ave N when I saw what appeared to be the aftermath of a car accident on Wallingford. There was a black SUV with some pretty bad damage to the front and a girl on the sidewalk crying with a woman. I thought […] Read more...

Free Rain Gardens: Better Than Sewage in Lake Union
Wallyhood - As has been covered on Wallyhood before, when it rains Wallingford's toilet flushes go into Lake Union at the bottom of Stone Way. This is partly because the down spouts on old construction go into the same tube your toilet does. The city wants to mitigate that by providing you with free rain gardern stuff if you live near […] Read more...

For instance, here's the triangle development at midvale and 45th talked about at the last WCC meeting, and here's the CVS building. Below […] Read more...

Fun With Maps: Wallingford Crime and Punishment
Wallyhood - Crime reports come into Wallyhood anecdotally, so I thought it would be an interesting thing to check out the Seattle Police Incident Map for a larger view. This doesn't include traffic accidents, but most anything else the police deal with gets reported on the incident map. Here is the view for the past week as […] Read more...

Move Levy: I-5 Bridge For Northgate But Not Wallingford
Wallyhood - For Wallingford, the real Move Transportation Levy story involves 2 possible pedestrian / bike bridges over I-5. One bridge connects the Northgate Light Rail Station with North Seattle College. The community college has 6,000 students and is surrounded by a low density neighborhood. The bridge requires a multi-story elevation climb and SDOT estimates the bridge must be […] Read more...

Everything Closed? Check Out New Parks!
Wallyhood - The 2008 parks levy paid for work on the Lower Woodland Park playfields and for a playground at Gasworks. The playfields were done right away because they saved the parks department on maintenance costs, and the playground at Gasworks has been put off to next year because it adds to maintenance costs (the levy didn't include […] Read more...

WCC Recap: Northlake Campers & 45th Developments
Wallyhood - The Wallingford Community Council meeting this past Wednesday did not have an agenda posted before hand, so attendance was light, although 2 city council candidates did attend. Kudos to Catherine Weatbrook and Michael Maddux for coming! Catherine Weatbrook is running against Mike O'Brien, who skipped the Wallingford debate in the last election cycle at the last possible second, […] Read more...

Move Transportation Levy: 45th and 50th to be One Way
Wallyhood - I went to the Move Transportation Levy meeting at Roosevelt on Monday night. I had figured the levy would just amount to adding a couple crosswalks to the neighborhood and then focus all the real money on Northgate and other light rail stops, but the draft proposal currently includes funding for making 45th and 50th […] Read more...
