Having lived in Redwood City for more than 25 years, I have watched it change from “Deadwood City” to a lively destination that draws outsiders in for an evening’s entertainment. Great restaurants, live theater and movies, and numerous city-sponsored events are icing on top of a cake made of award-winning schools, superb medical facilities, and countless companies (both tech and non-tech) that call Redwood City home.
Over the past few years I have been out and about on foot, exploring Redwood City’s nooks and crannies. I’ve ranged from the Easter Cross to Pete’s Harbor, and from the Middlefield Rd./Woodside Rd. intersection to as far north as Hillsdale Mall. I’ve been up Pulgas Ridge and through Edgewood Park, and have wandered up and down countless residential streets. As I go, I am always watching for the new and unusual, both in buildings and homes as well as in geographic features. This blog is intended as a record of those wanderings, with particular emphasis on the details of the building boom that Redwood City is currently experiencing.
