    What a stunning sculpture which can be view from different angles whether that is from standing directly underneath with the sky highlighting the gorgeous forms. Or from a distance they are beautiful. Position next to the Glass museum you really can’t miss them.

    Like the other reviews say, it's just a statue, but obviously a must-see for fans. Reasonably well-executed, but it's positioning in front of a Walgreen's does detract from the atmosphere just a bit.

    It's a somewhat bigger than average and more interesting than average statue. When we went, someone had struck blue and yellow paint across it, which I can only assume was a Ukrainian war protest.

    This is a way cool place if you're being indulgent, if you know what I mean. Otherwise it's just the normal kind of cool. It's an absolute must go there honey breezy day as he's are basically big flute. Not a must-see but a place that's interesting. The band Soundgarden use this place as the inspiration for the name of their band

    The Garden of Remembrance is a moving Memorial to those who gave their lives in ultimate sacrifice in wars since World War II. Worth stopping by for a few minutes.

    Walking over Pioneer Place passing the Totem Poles and the beautiful stone fronted Victorian Building,
    we came across this bronze bust of the Chief of the Suquamish, also known as Bust of Chief Seattle or the Chief Seattle Fountain. Created in 1909 by local Seattle Artist James A. Wehn, on a commision from the Seattle Park Board for the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition.
    Placed on a wide and circular drinking fountain for dogs and horses. It is one of the many art objects to the local indigenous people scattered around Pioneer Place. There are also many beautiful tributes to past Victorian times.

    TIP: Go to the nearby Milepost 31 Museum for more information on the Chief Seattle, its free.

    Admittedly, there may be better views of the New Year’s Eve fireworks show at the Seattle Space Needle, but “The Popsicle” on the corner of 4th Avenue and Blanchard Street is where it’s at for us.

    We’ve celebrated NYE here many times and witnessed many things (including a marriage proposal that included the “fine print” disclaimer of “I will propose to you for real…someday.” 🤫🤷‍♂️

    While you may or may not witness anything like a sorta/kinda marriage proposal when you visit, the views from this spot of the Space Needle and the fireworks show are only obstructed by a few power lines and tree branches (and this year some lingering clouds).

    This viewing location is easily walkable from most downtown hotels (our walk was approximately 12 minutes) and has felt safe each year to us with just two recommendations. Be sure to remain on the streets where the largest number of pedestrians are traveling and be sure to completely avoid walking on 3rd Avenue.

    A brand new year has been christened and hopeful new resolutions abound. Who knows? Maybe we’ll meet ‘ya at “The Popsicle” next year! 🤞

    And that’s…Henry’s Take.

    It's not a long walk from the Locks over to this little statue. It provides a brief snapshot of local native culture, as well as being in a fairly scenic location. The statue itself is situated in sort of a random street corner courtyard, so it doesn't have any parking of its own.

    The bronze sculpture of the Fallen Firefighters Memorial is located in Occidental Park. It was created after four firefighters died in the line of duty on January 5, 1995 fighting a fire in a warehouse in Seattle's Chinatown International District. The Memorial pays tribute to all Seattle firefighters who have died in the line of duty since the department began in 1889. The figures of the sculpture were intentionally designed with masked faces so they represent any of the thousands of firefighters of the Seattle Fire Department. Slabs of granite surround the sculpture symbolising a collapsed building. This is a truly moving memorial and worth visiting.

    Although I am not typically a fan of modern art I really liked this installation. The fact that you can see the space needle through the middle is fun, it is also a great place for a photo of yourself. If you are a fan of cool art in beautiful surroundings then this is a worthwhile stop.

    Fremont is absolutely worth a stop. Suggest stopping by after visiting Gas Works Park where we watched the seaplanes land between the boaters... the Troll was less than a mile away. This was our first (surreal) Fremont stop... from the Troll we walked about 200 yards (downhill) towards the Lenin statue; however, we detoured over to the left to the Fremont Signpost before turning right 100 yards back to Lenin... and the Rocket 🚀 came into view... just explore Fremont. It’s eclectically unique. Nuff said.

    This interesting statue is one of a number of public art pieces in Fremont. This piece was "rescued" from Europe after the collapse of Communism. If you are in the area and like public art this is a fun stop. Parking isn't to difficult to find in the area around the statue.

    This is a bronze statue of a famous historical traveler and explorer from Iceland.

    The base is surrounded by rune stones bearing the names of Scandinavian immigrants.
