Aside from the fact that the streets sparkle (from broken glass) West Oakland has some other gems worth seeing.
I love my neighborhood. A 3 mile bike ride down 7th street takes you to this. Somebody told me that San Franciscan's have a view of Oakland, but Oakland has this beautiful view of San Francisco.
Also peeped this dope dumpster painting just sitting out in the middle of nowhere.
This last one doesn't really fit in, but this was in a store window in Berkeley. I'm pretty sure there's a secret way to open it. Green smoke will bellow out and you'll be taken into another dimension.
