  1. I walk my dog around there all the time, albeit not at 2:00 am. I wonder what side of the street this was on. Boren is not well lit as it goes down towards Yesler.

  2. The owners of the property haven’t kept it cut back (on both sides of the street). The city just weedwacks their part.

    I travel that stretch early in the AM on my way to work (again, not at 2:00 AM), but visibility from the street isn’t good.
