Seattle City Skyline

City Skyline View of Downtown Seattle Waterfront Columbia Center, 1201 Third Avenue, Two Union Square, Seattle Municipal Tower, Safeco Plaza, Space Needle from Don Armeni Boat Ramp of Hamilton Viewpoint Park - Seattle, Washington State, USA | SAMTSAI.COM

July 4, 2012: City View of Downtown Seattle Waterfront from Don Armeni Boat Ramp of Hamilton Viewpoint Park. A few iconic buildings can be recognized. The black skyscraper on my right shoulder is Columbia Center, the tallest building in Seattle. The Space Needle on the far left of the picture is the tallest observation tower in Washington and 3rd-tallest in the United States.


Seattle skyline can be viewed from Hamilton Viewpoint Park (West Seattle), Kerry Park (downtown northwest), Gas Works Park (Lake Union). If you know other locations, please let me know. :-)
