Point 1: Information Booth, 1st & Pike
This is the site of original 1907 open-air market. The descending ramp leads to Post Alley and cafes such as Il Bistro and the Alibi Room. First & Pike News (formerly Read All About It) is one of Seattle's busiest newspaper stands. The adjacent Economy Market building dates from 1900, and was expanded in 1916 and again in 1978. Its interior atrium houses numerous shops and cafes in addition to the venerable Delaurenti's Delicatessen, and is connected to the newer South Market arcade, home of the Pike Brewing Company and other attractions.
