Let's change the city slogan from "Metronatural"

Apparently, Pioneer Square, Skid Road, and the I.D. had the highest rates of male occupancy and suicide. There were a lot of boarding houses and cheap residence hotels there, back in the day.

See, it's not the Aurora Bridge that's the problem, it's those depressive Queen Anne people that can't be bothered to off themselves at Seattle Center.
