Sunday/ U District

You’d better go out today⁠— while you can, I told myself this morning.
We’re heading into hot weather for the whole week, with 93°F / 34 °C forecast for Wednesday.

U District Station  I had just stepped off the northbound train, and started to make my way up the steps. At the same time the southbound train (this one) was is just departing.
This side of the building that houses Crossroads Trading Co. on University Way NE, used to be a bland off-white. Now its scarlet red really catches the eye! On the far side edge is the No 44 bus, about to drive into my picture.
Many eateries catering to UW students line University Way NE. These chickens invite diners to come and try some barbecued chicken and teriyaki chicken at the BBQ Chicken joint.
The Wells Fargo wall panel at NE 41st St and NE 15th Avenue with the historic University of Washington pictures is still there.
The University Manor Apartments just across from U District train station, was designed by architect Earl Roberts and constructed in 1926. It has an eight-story Collegiate Gothic apartment structure with a brick and cast stone exterior. Look for the corbels of grotesque human faces below the second floor, at the bottom of pilasters that separate the paired double-hung windows.
