In 1996, James Pixton moved with his wife Jennifer to California so he could be a bankruptcy lawyer. It was kind of a funny thing because he had always said he’d live anywhere but California.
A decade and half later, the Pixton family has grown from two to six including a couple water polo players and a couple writers. Alameda has been our home for nearly the entire time–and we don’t want to be anywhere else!
Alameda is the East Bay’s best kept secret. With a rejuvenated Park Street business district, there is almost no reason to ever leave the island! The Pixtons love Alameda! This town has been so good to us.
