Best Bus Stop

South Norman Street and 31st Avenue South

How many public places offer a sweeping view of Lake Washington, downtown Bellevue, the Cascades, and (on a clear day) the mighty Mount Rainier? A few, we'll grant you. But how many of those places happen to be bus shelters? The answer, dear reader, is but one. For better or worse, that shelter, serving the 14 line at the corner of South Norman Street and 31st Avenue South, isn't disturbed too often by those pesky contraptions known as buses. Which is to say, if you're waiting there for a ride into town, you may be sitting for a while. This is OK, however, because a vista like this is a destination in itself. JONATHAN KAMINSKY
