460 49th Street, Oakland California.

It feels like another lifetime, but I used to live in that house in the middle, albeit very briefly. It was my first Bay Area residence, from August to September, 2000. I moved out so fast because my crazy roommate squandered the rent money for her “personal needs.” I didn’t spend much more time in Oakland, leaving in March of 2001. Wandering through the old neighborhood brings back some memories, not necessarily good ones. But the past is the past.

  1. I lived at Telegraph and 59th across from the lectric washouse from 96-98. I lived in emeryville when you were all cool in Temescal, I think, but left the bay area for good in october of that year. If I am not mistaken that 49th st adress should be pretty hot property about now.

    1. It was a fairly hot property then, too, but I was most interested in the amount of cartoonists in the hood. Dan Clowes supposedly lived a few blocks down 49th. The neighborhood has definitely seen its share of gentrification now, but there still are some old businesses.

  2. Funny you mention cartoonists, I think I went to a garage sale at Lloyd Dangle’s house not too far from Temescal square. It was weird, I just can’t remember any other details. Maybe piles of his old comics and lots of clothes? I had no idea that Clowes lived there.

I love to hear from you!
