159) Bike series (8/15). One of the best things about this project is discovering interesting street names that have escaped me all these years. Seattle streets are about 95% number-based and many of the word-named streets are rather well known (e.g. Denny or Pike or Dexter). But then there are little gems like Vernon Place. Existing for a scant two blocks in old Ballard, what Vernon Place lacks in length it makes up for in having a mailbox. (Yes, I totally made up that “95%” part.)
