    The dock is slowly collapsing, as a tilted platform connected to both dock and piles shows. High tides have pushed driftwood about halfway up its length. Nice view of Elliott Bay; private beach at low tide.

     History
    This dock looks like an old car ferry landing, but it isn't; it has rails. It seems to predate the construction of Terminal 5.
