Berkeley's Northbrae Neighborhood

New, 4 comments

The American Planning Association has released its annual Great Places in America list. The places represent "the gold standard in terms of having a true sense of place, cultural and historical interest, community involvement, and a vision for tomorrow." The list is broken down into three categories: neighborhoods, streets and public spaces. Did San Francisco make it onto any of the lists? No. But Berkeley's Northbrae neighborhood made it onto the Great Neighborhoods list because of its "spectacular vistas of San Francisco Bay, environmentally sensitive design, connections to a unique network of 136 paths and steps crisscrossing Berkeley, and two nearby commercial areas for shopping and entertainment." Congrats, Berkeley! [APA]
