    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    Located on the Eastern shore of the San Francisco Bay, Oakland is often known as "The Other City by the Bay". With a population of over 415,000, Oakland is the 8th largest city in California. Temperatures are mild with summertime highs averaging in the mid 70s and winter temperatures in the mid fifties.

    Despite boasting several affluent neighborhoods, and many very safe ones, Oakland has yet to escape the stigma of its crime rate. However, Oakland is also a diverse and interesting city, with attractions including the Jack London Square waterfront, Lake Merrit, the Chabot Space and Science Center, and Chinatown. Oakland is also well known for its sports teams. The Athletics (baseball), Raiders (football), Golden State Warriors (basketball), and the Slammers (basketball) all draw large crowds.

    Oakland is the home to many cultural events, including an international film showcase, and Greek, Mexican and Chinese festivals. According to the 2000 US Census, Oakland is one of the two most diverse cities in the United States, with over 150 languages spoken. Maybe the cultural clashes add to the high crime rate.
