San Francisco Chronicle: Alameda Point, Alameda, October 13, 2010


Jets once roared down the runways of the Alameda Naval Air Station, once located on the western side of this island city. Decommissioned in 1997 and renamed Alameda Point, its vast stretches of land contain an appealing mix of diversions. Remnants of its military past remain, especially aboard the imposing USS Hornet Museum and at the Alameda Naval Air Museum.
