"Alameda's Little Prehensile Tail"

Not so much a neighborhood—it is really more of a promontory, just sticking out like a little tail out into the San Francisco Bay. It is nice little green space with waterside walkways. Great for taking kids and just hanging out.

I’ve seen teenagers head out here at night, so it might be some kind of make out point or party spot in the middle of the night. I don’t know, not having grown up here.

Not much else to it, really.
