“The coolest thing about the apartment is the views,” says Iacoli. “The living room and my bedroom look into downtown. It’s a bird’s eye view you could only have from our building; to me, it doesn’t even look like Seattle. Brian’s bedroom looks out over Lake Union. He has lakes and mountains and I have like a city/sound/mountain view. The neighborhood is nice because it’s quiet, but there’s also this weird bodega a block away from us called the Meat Market that’s a magnet for transient people. So I don’t feel like I’m living in a vanilla neighborhood. It’s quiet, but it’s still a little bit gritty, which I like.”
