Fans' favourites include a wall made of wine barrels, a picture of a lady and a "hole in the wall," a replica of the Alameda Point Antiques Market on Webster Street.
Often compared to Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York, the park was an important recreational destination until the 1930s. But after the Great Depression left many people without much money and changed transport patterns, it closed in 1937 for lack of funds. People began traveling farther in California, and using their cars to escape the nearby suburbs of the city to Alameda. The rise of car culture gave people much more opportunities to relax, and people avoided paying the admission price.
The ferry docks in the Central Pacific became the Alameda Pier, with a series of wooden bridges over the San Francisco Bay and Bay Bridge, as well as a number of other attractions. In the 1930s and 1940s, regular trains passing through the "Mole of Alameda" lost passengers when the Bay Bridge was finished and people switched to cars. In the early 20th century, it was served by a railroad line that ran between the city of Oakland and San Jose and stopped at the Santa Clara Riverfront.
The airfield was closed in 1941 when air traffic disrupted the newly built Alameda Naval Air Station. With the beginning of World War II, the Bay Bridge and the San Francisco Bay Bridge were filled up and NASAlameda was founded. In the 1930s and 1940s, there was also an air station for the Naval Aviation Training Center of the Air National Guard in Al Oakland, though the ceremony was the first of its kind in US Navy history. The city of Alabama responded by building its own air base, which was known as an "air station" until the 34th America's Cup, and where it worked with San Diego, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Oakland and Oakland. In the early 20th century, the Al-Ameda trains were connected to San Francisco by the Central Pacific Railroad, stopping at the Santa Cruz Riverfront.
The organization offers the community a range of arts programs, including free cultural and arts meetings, attended by more than 2,000 young people each year. There are two libraries in Alameda: the West End library serving the West End of Oakland and the Bay Farm Island library serving the Bay Farm, Farm Harbor and Bay communities.
The Bay Area Rapid Transit is considering the creation of a second Transbay Tube, and a possible alignment would bring BART services to Alameda Island. The nearest BART station is in Oakland's Chinatown, which leads to Oakland Chinatown, and the San Francisco Bay Ferry provides access to the Bay Farm, Farm Harbor and Bay Harbor communities. There are three bridges over Oakland, one over the Oakland Bay Bridge, the other over the East Bay and one over Bay Street in the Port of Oakland.
A city team of staff and consultants will be asking the public for input on preliminary strategies to improve transportation in Alameda for the next two years as part of the city's transportation plan.

California State Route 61 runs between Posey and Webster Street south of Oakland Airport. The beach also features a crab bay and a bird sanctuary where visitors can learn about the Bay Area marine life. Beyond the beach there is also a playground for children, a children's playground and an outdoor amphitheatre with live music.
On March 21, 2006, Alameda was the site of the first US Air Force National Guard base in the Bay Area. It was then designated one of only four Air Forces Air Base Designated Special Operations Command (AFSCOM) sites in the country and is the only one in California and the second largest air force base in America.
The city consists of the original main section, while Bay Farm Island is part of the mainland proper. The city was founded after California was taken over by the United States after the Mexican-American War of 1848. On September 6, 1869, the Alameda Terminal made history: it was the first stop of the first transcontinental railroad to reach the San Francisco Bay coast, reaching its goal of transporting passengers from coast to coast. In 1929, the University of California founded the San Francisco Airdrome at what is now Webster Street subway station as a public airport.
