Brooklyn Basin

Brooklyn Basin Brooklyn Basin will be a new neighborhood revitalizing Oakland's waterfront with 32 acres of new parks, trails, and views of San Francisco Bay.

Brooklyn Basin is an infill waterfront revitalization project along the Oakland Estuary. Previously, the site was a blighted industrial property that was closed to the public. In 2005, Signature Development Group envisioned a plan to transform the area into a world class park to be enjoyed by the residents and visitors to the Bay Area, as well as add thousands of market and affordable rate residences to a severely under-supplied market. The project is projected to generate over 10,000 jobs and millions in annual tax revenue for the City of Oakland. Currently, Signature Development Group and Zarsion Holdings are working with the City of Oakland to remediate the property and build key infrastructure to the site.

Before California was even a state, a ship named Brooklyn began its nearly 6-month voyage from NY around Cape Horn, bringing settlers to the Bay Area. Anchoring in a basin in the Oakland Estuary, the anchorage became known as the #BrooklynBasin, a name that remains on nautical charts to this very day...

#ThrowbackThursday Did you know? The town of Brooklyn here in Oakland was part of "Brooklyn Township", an area home to several large breweries, including the Brooklyn Brewery! ”Brooklyn Steam Beer was a local product. Even after Brooklyn became part of Oakland, people liked to use the name to distinguish their neighborhood. The Brooklyn Brewery began 1872 under A. Miller at Eighteenth Avenue and East Fourteenth Street.” 1

At its peak during summer months, Brooklyn Brewery produced 35 barrels of Brooklyn Steam Beer a day.

The Brooklyn name lives on in Oakland via a street called Brooklyn Avenue, and business names such as Old Brooklyn Bagels & Deli....and now in #BrooklynBasin! (Read more: http://bit.ly/BrooklynOaklandWiki)

Who knew the Mai Tai was invented in #Oakland?
"The Polynesian-themed drink was first served in 1944 by Victor Bergeron in his legendary Bay Area restaurant Trader Vic's (more on Vic's later), when it was located in its original Oakland location. Mai Tai, which is spelled in Maita'i in its native Tahitian, translates to "good."

Waterfront access is at the heart of #BrooklynBasin’s design. Parks along the Estuary will be linked by a pedestrian and bike path system that connects Jack London Square with Oakland’s eastern waterfront. Brooklyn Basin will also eventually connect to Lake Merritt via bike, transit and pedestrian pathways. The new neighborhood marina will have space for over 200 slips, accommodating everything from yachts and sailboats to kayaks.

#ThrowbackThursday Did you know that much of East Oakland, stretching from the eastern edge of Lake Merritt to what is now Fruitvale Avenue, and from what is now MacArthur Boulevard to the shores of San Francisco Bay actually used to be called Brooklyn? We're sharing this article again because even long time #Oakland residents loved reading about the areas rich history and the inspiration behind our name. Many shared stories of family roots in the neighborhood. Share yours!

Brooklyn Basin, Oakland Harbor, Viewing North from Alameda, c.1900
Booming commerce in the late 19th century led to the need for the expansion of shipping facilities in both Oakland and Alameda. A shipping and tidal channel were dredged between them in 1902, extending and deepening the natural estuary joining Oakland’s harbor with the San Leandro Bay. Consequently, Alameda became an “island” as well as an important shipping port. Most of the excavated soil was used to fill sections of the nearby marshland.

Thanks for sharing this bit of history, Bennett!

Our favorite new restaurants of the year

The San Francisco Chronicle named #Oakland's Dyafa as one of their favorite new restaurants of the year!

"Dyafa, a dazzling 105-seat waterfront jewel in Jack London Square, was inspired by Reem’s California, a small Arab bakery in the shadow of a train station about 3 miles away. The Dyafa menu emphasizes mezze spreads, including labneh and muhammara (roasted red pepper and walnut dip), just like Reem’s California. Here, there’s also a host of large plates and much more, like stuffed squid, spiced lamb and creative cocktails that are among the best in all of Oakland." — J.P.

It has been a pivotal year for both the restaurant industry and the journalists who cover it. While dozens of high-profile investigations uncovered harassment, wage theft and other abuse in the food world, American restaurant criticism also took a notable shift.
