Garfield High School, with its ball fields (which were posted as being a weapons free zone) and the new Quincy Jones Performance Center,
Garfield Community Center and Medgar Evers Pool.
This area is home to Little Ethiopia and has lots of Ethiopian restaurants, Hawkins Garden P-Patch Community Garden,
Powell Barnett Park with its lovely green space,
Trinity Faith Temple (we could hear music coming from the unadorned building),
Madrona Presbyterian Church (both pictured in prior posts) and 23rd and Cherry Fellowship Hall.
These neighborhoods are all close together but each has its own vibe. Madrona, Leschi and Mann had many pampered houses and gardens. Minor's pampering varied street by street and even house by house.
Seven Star Women's Kung Fu, an old phone booth in a front yard,
and an unexpected footpath and staircase at Arlington and 31st.
