To: Seattle Parks and Rec Re: Gasworks Park

Dear Parks and Rec,

Gasworks Park link!   What a steam punk extravaganza!

How long will it be before the tanks start falling down from rust?

How about this for a revenue stream? Sell square feet of space on the site to taggers. Lower down on the tanks will be very expensive and the top will be much cheaper.

There’s the precedent of the gum wall


If tourists will come for the gum wall, just think of how much better the spectacle of a completely tagged gasworks would be.

And… the gasworks gets painted by taggers would would pay for the privilege.
