It’s the Orange Needle

Here’s a little fun fact for all my new Seattle friends…

Did you know that the space needle used to be orange? They called it “Galaxy Gold,” which of course is the fancy name for tacky orange. Originally for the 1962 World’s Fair held in Seattle, the city finally got smart about it and painted it white, that is until the 40th anniversary in 2002, when they painted it orange again (sigh).
