People Waiting For The Interurban
N 34th St @ Fremont Ave N
Sculptor Richard Beyer's People Waiting for the Interurban is one of the symbols of Seattle's Fremont neighborhood. It features sculptures of six people and a dog standing underneath a shelter waiting for the old Seattle-Everett Interurban.
Locals routinely dress the people up for holidays, local events and birthday celebrations - in fact, they have been decorated in some way every time I've stopped by the installations. Beyer's work is one of a handful of his pieces found in Seattle, and one of a number of highlights for visitors to Fremont.
