Edith Macefield House Off to Orcas; What $1,000 Rents You

This week's top hits from Eater Seattle, Curbed's sibling bar, restaurant, and nightlife blog.

SOLD STUFF The Opal Community Land Trust is the new owners of the Edith Macefield House and their plan is to move the iconic Ballard home all the way UP to Orcas Island where it will be refurbished to its former glory and become affordable housing for some lucky island residents. Now all they need is $205K in order to move the structure.

CURBED COMPARISONS With rents going through the roof, Curbed decided to look at what's available around Seattle in the $1,000/month range. Studios, so many studios. See what you can get from First Hill to Victory Heights to Queen Anne for a thousand.

COOL MAP THING Metrocosm recently introduced a map that compiles more than 90,000 UFO sightings across the United States since 1905. Here in the Seattle-area, the hotspots for unexplained phenomena seem to be found in Renton, Bremerton, Everett, Whidbey Island and Port Orchard, mostly around July 4th (hmmm).
