I found this video clip on utube. Alameda has 2 tubes that run under the estuary (one that goes outbound from Alameda, the other goes inbound to Alameda). 5 drawbridges: Park St, Fruitvale, High St, and the Bay Farm Island Bridge and 1 bike/pedestrian bridge, that runs parallel to the BFI bridge.
A major concern these days (and after watching the effects and after-effects of Hurricane Harvey in Texas), what will the residents do if any of those tubes and/or bridges become inoperable?
Often first-time buyers don’t realize what they don’t have once they own their home. That’s why my late husband, Carl, and I were willing to take furniture from his mom and my parents! What was old to them was new to us! It was worth renting a truck in S CA and bringing back ‘new-to-us’ here in Alameda!
Plus, our town has all types of stores that feature ‘the old’ style furniture…that can match the style of the property. And they have a sale on some of that stuff at the Alameda Museum, and the Oakland Museum has a White Elephant Sale every year. Check them out online! (I would warn buyers….pace yourselves.)
