Just East of Temescal’s Telegraph Avenue in North Oakland is the neighborhood of Rockridge. Centered around the Rockridge Bart Station, this neighborhood runs the length of College Avenue from Broadway to the Elmwood, Berkeley border. Rockridge is a coveted neighborhood for budding young families, as evidenced by the boutique baby stores that speckle the strip. But there are shops for all sorts: rare bookstores, coffee shops, and the Rockridge Market Hall for imported and local delicacies.
Although Rockridge is densely populated, the Bart station allows the community to weave together a perfect mixture of residential, commercial and retail, while also appealing to commuters and visitors. All around, this neighborhood has it all: walkability, public transit, and some of the best restaurants (Box and Bells, A16, Ramen Shop to name a few) and wine bars Oakland has to offer. And of course, famously beautiful one-of-a-kind craftsman bungalows, cottages, and early 19th century mansions, all meticulously well maintained and landscaped to boot.
