This site features Neighborhood News in and around the Prescott Oakland Point neighborhood which is one of the oldest residential and commercial areas in Oakland. The Prescott-Oakland Point Neighborhood Association (POPna) community group's boundary is defined within Mandela Pkwy (East), 7th Street (South), 580(North), San Francisco Bay (West) encompassing the "Central Station" development and Oakland Army Base Area.
In San Francisco, it all comes back to our neighborhoods: where we live, where we work, where we eat, and where we play. First launched in 2006, Curbed has been at the center of the virtual city, covering real estate sales, rental prices, and news-making deals. We also track the newest developments in architecture and design while keeping up with the hottest restaurants, via our sister site Eater SF, and the latest neighborhood gossip—it's all on Curbed, because this is where you live.
Curbed SF is the third of the Curbed sites, which also include Curbed NY and Curbed LA, and part of the Curbed Network, a collection of neighborhood blogs. Our other sites are the restaurant blog Eater, the retail and fashion blog Racked and, during the summer season, The Beach, which covers the Hamptons.

Forage Oakland is a project that- at its core- works to address how we eat everyday, and how everyone can benefit from viewing their neighborhood as a veritable edible map, considering what is cultivated in any given neighborhood and why, and what histories influence those choices. The gleaning of unharvested fruits; the meeting of new neighbors; the joy of the season's first hachiya persimmon (straight from your neighbor's backyard, no less); the gathering and redistribution of fruits that would otherwise be wasted- can be powerful and can work to create a new paradigm around how we presently think about food in our collective consciousness. Imagine gathering several friends for morning, midday, evening or weekend foraged city bicycle rides through your neighborhood.
Vinography began on January 15th, 2004 as a personal project for founder and editor Alder Yarrow. The site is now a respected source for non-mainstream wine writing, and one of the most influential wine blogs on the Internet. Featuring wine and sake reviews, restaurant reviews, editorials, book reviews, wine news, and wine event coverage, Vinography publishes new content daily to a global readership. The site's contributors work hard to create an alternative to the traditional sources and styles of wine journalism, partially through its emphasis on the stories, the people, and the passion behind wine, all told from a decidedly down-to-earth perspective.

Streetsblog is a daily news source connecting people to information about sustainable transportation and livable communities.
Since 2006, Streetsblog has covered the movement to transform our cities by reducing dependence on private automobiles and improving conditions for pedestrians, cyclists, and transit riders. Our reporters have broken important stories about transit funding, pedestrian safety, and bicycle policy from day one. And our writing makes arcane topics like parking prices and induced traffic accessible to a broad audience.
The Oakland Museum of California is temporarily closed for the renovation and transformation. Join us in May 2010 for the grand reopening.

We envision communities and workplaces where technology is a silent partner, boosting productivity, enhancing profitability, and enabling communication. There should be no internal barriers to the broad opportunities that are opened by the internet. Online strategies should be as straightforward to implement as sending an email. We envision that Tech Liminal can help achieve this new level of productivity and creativity by bringing business professionals, community leaders and technology experts together.
