Education in Oakland

The Eclectic-est Street You Never Heard Of

Posted by novometro on September 26, 2006

On what other block in Oakland can you get a wig, a tattoo, a bespoke bathrobe, some of the best pho in California, and if you have a medical marijuana card, dope? Maybe its the trees, but the stretch of 17th Street between Franklin and Webster has always stood apart from the rest of downtown Oakland. It’s romantic. On some days it resembles a Saigon backstreet on others, somewhere in Paris. After a decade-long hiatus, merchants on 17th are hosting a street fair this Saturday. The fair begins at 11 a.m. and ends at 6 p.m.

  1. 17th is hip and trendy, pretty and gritty, all at once. See you there!
