A main north-south artery of Seattle, stretching north from the original Pioneer Square business district, First Avenue was lined with offices, leading hotels, banks and even a few residences. Until the mid-20th century, the street was also home to boarding houses, wholesale firms, and small factories located inside old buildings. Second Avenue, paralleling First, also had a broad range of businesses and formed an integral part of the downtown. Today, with a different commercial blend that features specially shops and restaurants, First Avenue remains a vital north-south corridor for the city.
