Agasi Vartanyan paced back and forth in the glass box he's called home for the last 55 days, his voice booming as he chatted on his phone during the final hours of his fast commemorating the Armenian genocide. As the clock neared 11 a. m. Thursday, he removed a few of the amenities in his makeshift bedroom: a wireless Internet router taped to the window, a blanket and a neon green hand mirror that hung from a wooden wall. Vartanyan's fast began April 3 outside a Burbank church, weeks before the 100-year anniversary of the massacre of about 1. 2 million Armenian people in their homeland at the hands of Ottoman Turks. His reason for fasting precisely 55 days was twofold: He turns 55 this year, he said, and it was important for him to end his fast on May 28, the day Armenians celebrate their independence, survival and creation of a nation. "Even though they killed us 100 years ago, they did not succeed in killing our willpower or our will to survive," Vartanyan said. Armenians regard the massacre that took place in 1915 as part of an organized, orchestrated effort by the Ottoman Turkish government. The Armenian people have for years called on the Turkish government to recognize the massacre as genocide.
Nor did I hear how the first Starbucks did business for years in this neighborhood before selling its first cup of coffee. In late August, Times photographer Mark Boster and I spent four days in the market, and this time I met more people and heard more history and backstage chatter. First, the Pike Place Market Historic District is 9 acres — bigger than you thought, right. Besides its many stalls, which house a rotating cast of farmers (about 80) and artisans (about 225), its 20 buildings hold more than 30 restaurants and 250 stores, four fish merchants, a senior center, a health clinic, a food bank and a child-care... (That child-care center, market officials say, is one reason weed will not be part of the market's offerings any time soon, despite Washington state's vote to legalize marijuana in 2012. ). Most visitors "never see it for what it is," said... Carrabba likes to point out that more than 400 people live in the market district, that its first mortuary is now occupied by an Irish pub (Kells) and that Princess Angeline, daughter of Chief Seattle, lived in a shack on this hillside until her...
