Alameda City Flag
Alameda is a charming island city and sometimes confused with the name of the county to which it belongs (Alameda!). Perhaps the city/county founders were so enamored of the name, they christened it twice (along the lines of New York, NY?) But I digress …
As a long time resident, I have watched the city evolve over the years in an attempt to keep pace with the ever changing times. Whilst change can be good, it has certainly not been easy for Alameda as witnessed by the passionate debates over growth vs. preservation. This blog will attempt to chronicle some facets about life in Alameda and perhaps this might help explain why there is no other place quite like it in the entire bay area.
