A very nice neighborhood in downtown Seattle, notable for its architecture. Seattle, like Chicago, survived the fire, which eventually marked an architectural revolution for the city with the advent of red brick buildings. The new development was designed one level above the old buildings to avoid drainage problems, leaving all of the Pioneer Sqaure ruins that survived the fire underground. As a result of this restructuring, many buildings have been built with two entrances: underground and above ground. Currently, there is a special Seattle Underground Tour, which offers you to visit the ruins of the underground city. The heart of the district is Occidental Square (117 S Washington St), a pretty square surrounded by countless cafés and shops and with a memorial to fallen firefighters. Get away from the hustle and bustle of the city in Waterfall Garden Park (Second and Main Streets, Pioneer Square), a secluded pocket park that really looks like an oasis in the urban jungle.
