"Honda, Homes and Iron Works"

Stretching between the Nimitz Freeway and the San Leandro Blvd., the Laua Manor neighborhood is a mostly residential neighborhood made up of older, fairly well-kept Ranch homes. These are not the large, long Ranchers that become common in the late 50’s and early 60’s; these are the Ranch homes from the late 40’s and early 50’s: they are smaller and more modest looking, and used to be associated for me with grandparents. In the Laua Manor neighborhood, however, these homes are nicely kept enough that I do not find them unappealing (except maybe on the eastern end where they are a little more worn and give way to older houses).

Home prices here run between $200 K and $300 K, probably because of the poor schools and some crime. As far as the schools go, these are below average schools through middle school. San Leandro High Schools manages to be about average, which is an accomplishment given that many of the schools feeding it are so poor. Overall, however, most families probably want better than average if possible, and certainly not below average.

On the eastern end of the neighborhood, you fin iron works and towing companies and the kind of urban detritus that make neighborhoods feel oppressive.

It is also home to a big Honda, Hyundai and across the street from it a Ford dealership along Marina Blvd. which forms Laua Manor’s southern border.
