Many of our streets have Jacaranda’s on them, but only this one near us is lined with them. There’s a row of them lining Nimitz Blvd on its way into our neighborhood, but there is nothing as dramatic as these.
The buildings are old HUD housing. My mother moved into one when her rent on the bay was raised. I often wonder what she would think of 3000 a month in that neighborhood. They are gutting one row of these old apartments…not just upgrading them but gutting them down to the bare bones. I follow the changes with interest but know the rent will be sky high when they are done.
