Recently, I was house hunting with a client in Alameda. A quick drive from Oakland across the Park Street bridge and I was in sleepy Alameda; a community I visit often for weekend soccer games. (My children both play soccer.) As Alameda develops and improves, it maintains the small town charm we love. Alameda is loved for its close proximity to the entire East Bay and San Francisco, the beach, the ferry system to San Francisco, the performing school district and tree-lined streets.
After I showed a few homes and parted with my client, I stopped for lunch at Tomatina and stepped into a cozy book store, Book Inc. I would love to live walking distance to Park Street and this revived downtown, "main street". With the newly restored Alameda Movie Theatre on Central to the Peet's Coffee; this is an ideal walking neighborhood.
I love this gorgeous building on Park Street, Alameda Ca.
