Joe Downtown: Insight of the week

Overheard downtown:

“It’s like the early days of a cultural revolution, like the Beat Generation of Jack Kerouac, Ken Kesey and Allen Ginsberg without the hard drugs and the dysfunction.”

— Downtown as seen through the eyes of Tom Haskins, 56, who moved here from Seattle last week after reading about downtown’s redevelopment.

Joe Schoenmann doesn’t just cover downtown, he lives and works there. Schoenmann is Greenspun Media Group’s embedded downtown journalist, working from an office in the Emergency Arts building.
