Oakland is garnering national media attention again with articles focusing on our amazing culture, weather and diversity. Oakland is often compared to Brooklyn and some of the comparisons have merit. A few months back a NY Times article, entitled Another City by the Bay Comes Into Its Own, highlighted the growth that the sunny side of the bay has recently experienced and the draw that Oakland has to residents and businesses.

Congrats to our friends/colleagues from Kitchener Oakland who expanded with the Kitchener Collective in Corte Madera. Proud of their hustle.
