The renaissance of Seattle's alleys
CityStream: Reactivated Alleys

You're late for a meeting or a movie so you take a shortcut through an alley. It's unnerving. You walk fast. You want out. But in some parts of Seattle, people are crowding in. Back alleys have become the new front porch. Many are being cleared out and cleaned up. They've become a place to build community, exchange wedding vows, even a spot to honor the recently departed. So, what's behind this renaissance? And where is it happening? Diane Duthweiler takes you on a tour of Seattle's revitalized alleys!
