We not only have a University- but also a college. Very rare for such a small city. Tom Hanks went to Chabot college. Clint Eastwood once lived in Hayward as a teen. Jonee Miller,voice of the Gigantes is a Haywardite
Not just a BART station..but two BART stations also. I walk one block to San Francisco and Oakland you might say.
If you look around,we have a large number of those 50's styles Burger joints,Casper's Hot Dogs,Eatery's and lots of neon signs.
The hills..just nice round mounds of green in winter.
The best bay area weather,the best water...just waiting for what turned around other sleepy towns into something nice. Waiting.
