Center of the Universe

The Fremont neighborhood of Seattle has claimed to be the "Center of the Universe." From the Troll to the statue of Lenin to the wall murals it is one of the most colorful areas of town. There is also a life size dinosaur covered in ivy, a rocket ship and Rapunzel's hair streaming down in neon from the bridge control deck. The sign directing visitors to places beyond Fremont has gotten "tired.. and a new one was installed this week celebrating the solstice.
