Nihonmachi Green Street Celebrates Completion

The first “green street” in the Chinatown/International District celebrated its official grand opening on November 19, including a blessing of the plants with water from a traditional pump made in Japan.  The design honors the Japanese American experience in Seattle, in the Nihonmachi area on Maynard Avenue South, between Main and Jackson.  The project was awarded $96,600  from the Neighborhood Matching Fund Large Project Fund.   More information can be found at www.interimicda.org, and photos herehttp://www.flickr.com/photos/seattleneighborhoods/sets/72157625297570746/
