Old town Oakland, 9th near Broadway

Some years back Oakland renovated and preserved a four block area of downtown off Broadway, now called Old Oakland.  These buildings predate the 1906 earthquake and represent the intricate architecture of the late Victorian era.  A number of popular restaurants are here but many retail spaces remain empty.  There's also a Farmer's Market here once a week.  Three blocks north is Preservation Park, where many Victorian homes were restored and are now used for weddings, meeting spaces, and offices for local nonprofits.


  1. Beautiful architecture and a nice shot.

  2. Popuphood has curated multiple retail shops to open in Old Oakland for a Grand Opening just in time for the Holiday shopping season.

    This is a community based effort to revitalize this historic part of the city.

    Please support if you can.
