A visit to the USS Hornet in Alameda is like taking a trip back in time. The ship served in both World War II and Vietnam, and it famously recovered the Apollo 11 astronauts from the Pacific after the 1969 moon landing.

"Guests were met with the soft and periodic sound of whizzing traffic on one side and ferry boats on the other as they made their way up the steps into the new Oakland offices of Sunset Magazine in Jack London Square. A smiling security guard opened the door with a small whoosh and let them enter the 110,000-square foot office space with white cubicles and office chairs on one end and tables for drinks, hors d’oeuvres and party bags on the other."

The east side story

I’m on the east side of Alameda Island, standing in mud in front of a storm drain that empties out into San Leandro Bay. There’s a stretch of homes right on the shoreline looking out at estuaries, the Oakland Airport, and Coliseum. The waterline isn’t quite at my feet right now, but in less than a century I’d likely be standing in water up to my shoulders.
