Jesus Christ Made Seattle Under Protest
The starting letter of each of those words is the starting letter of two consecutive streets in the downtown core.
Starting at Yesler and working north the twelve streets are:
J = Jefferson, James
C = Cherry, Columbia
M = Marion, Madison
S = Spring, Seneca
U = University, Union
P = Pike, Pine
That’s still how I remember the streets. While driving around the other day, I had to spell out the pneumonic to remember that Madison was south of Spring.
Does anyone else remember learning the streets this way?
