There is a long standing love affair between the Divas and Beacon Hill. Back in my (Diva Chavi) old corporate working days I use to love taking the super long but interesting old #36 route all the way from Rainier Beach to Downtown Seattle going straight down Beacon Ave. The line traveled down the former trolley line, turning at Beacon Ave Park, passing Fou Lee, the Jefferson Golf Course and then ending up in North Beacon right next to the stunning new library and light rail station. Each stop on the #36 takes in the local culture and flavor of the neighborhood. It’s almost cliche to say that the neighborhood is multi-cultural. It is the one of the few neighborhoods in all of my travels where one truly sees people of all ethnicities, modern home owning young couples, mid-century home loving gay folks and multi-generational traditional families all living together in harmony!
One of my favorite anthems about Beacon Hill comes from one of our favorite local artists Blue Scholars called “Fou Lee.” It perfectly captures the essence and how locals hang in their special hood on the Hill. Blue Scholars’ music perfectly capture the pride and love of growing up and thriving in Beacon Hill. Watch and enjoy->
Mackelmore is by no means a new comer to the Seattle scene but Mackelmore and friends are making a big splash nationally. The video below, Our Town, captures the romance of hanging out in North Beacon Hill and watching the sun setting over the city. Its as if Our Town-Seattle is seen best fromÂ Beacon Hill!
