Something to remember, as we enter a new year: Yesterday's history, Tomorrow is a mystery and Today is a gift, that's why it is called "the present". [Via]

Community Celebration Update

In one of the worst economies and in an area that has received little positive press over the past years, Central Station has seen some of the greatest success of any new development in the Bay Area.

On Thursday, Oct. 29th 2009 Central Station celebrated the completion of nearly 400 homes (currently over 200 new residents) as part of the first phase of Central Station, the largest private investment in the history of the Prescott Oakland Point neighborhood.

The block party was an opportunity that brought together new and long-time residents. The 300+ attendees of this party included the Lew Hing family, local elected officials, local businesses, out-of-towners, and represented the rich Prescott Oakland Point neighborhood of people of diverse ethnic, cultural and economic backgrounds living side by side which dates back to the early nineteenth century.

The party featured photography exhibit by award winning Katherine Westerhout, photos by Jason Mehrtens, music by Jonathan Smothers DJ, beer from Linden Street Brewery, wine from Urban Legend Cellars , foods from Brown Sugar Kitchen and Namie's Kitchen, Scream Sorbet providing dessert and Galatea Cafe provided coffee, tea and pastry. THANK YOU ALL!

For those who couldn’t make it, I hope to see you at the next community event currently in the planning stages now.
