Oakland: America's radical city has gone from gritty to gentrified

Oakland: America's radical city has gone from gritty to gentrified. In Oakland, a gritty, industrial port city of 400,000 souls just across the bay from San Francisco, the anti-tech rebellion has found a bastion. Long America’s crucible of leftwing radicalism, Oakland’s poverty, decay and murder rates deterred all but the hardiest would-be gentrifier during the dotcom bubble. But today, gentrification hums through northern and western Oakland.
