Oakland’s Journey From Seedy to Sizzling

Oakland makes me proud. I've lived here on and off over the past 13 years and am encouraged by the cultural scene that has developed. Let's face it, Oakland is the coolest city in the Bay Area, or should I say the hippest?

Check out this article from the May 2, 2010 New York Times titled Oakland's Journey from Seedy to Sizzling. If you can't take the heat, step aside.
