taking a walk on the Mandela Parkway in West Oakland
Oakland, California
Thursday, December 22, 2011

West Oakland was --- and still is --- a heavily industrial neighborhood. It's also an attractive neighborhood for artists, who often need to rent large but less expensive "live-work" spaces.

Note that this brick building has been retrofitted. The large "X" braces should help ensure the safety of the resident artists whenever another large earthquake happens ... as it surely will.
