CityStream: Archives, Aging in Place & Illumination

Local historians and genealogists have relied on the National Archives in Seattle for decades, but now it's on the chopping block. Native Americans and Northwest political leaders are fighting the cost-cutting plan by the federal government to shut it down. Then, as housing costs continue to climb, many senior citizens are choosing to stay put in their own homes. It's called "aging in place," and it only takes small changes to produce big benefits. Also, Western Neon is the company behind many of the city's distinctive signs. Now they're sharing trade secrets through classes in neon design. Host Tatevik Aprikyan has these stories from the stunning lobby of Two Union Square.
