Residents of this city have finally found a group that irritates them more than the recent wave of immigrants from Southern California. New Yorkers. More specifically, a New York-based real estate firm called the Urban Group. Seattle has been shocked this winter to learn that local officials, starting in 1981, quietly sold or leased to the company 11 buildings making up 90% of the city's famed Pike Place Market.

An ornate cast-iron canopy that was one of Seattle's landmarks was accidentally knocked down by a truck and smashed to pieces Monday. The rear of the truck clipped a corner of the 91-year-old pergola before daybreak, police spokesman Sean O'Donnell said. No injuries were reported. "I'm a tour guide down here," said Keith Perry, manager of Casual Cabs. "Now what am I going to show people?"

A small fire that broke out in the kitchen of the 605-foot Space Needle was quickly contained Saturday, but the lunchtime blaze forced officials to close the revolving restaurant on the landmark tower at least until today. No one was reported injured in the fire, the first in the tower's 26-year history, a spokesman said.
