East Palo Alto Struggles With Success
After battling crime and poverty for 17 years, East Palo Alto is experiencing it's long-sought redevelopment. Silicon Valley prosperity suddenly has come to East Palo Alto. While outsiders avoided East Palo Alto during the 1990s, developers, retailers and house-hunters have since created a gold rush stampede toward the city, which offers the last stretches of open and relatively affordable land on the Peninsula. Recent allegations of corruption and planning problems threaten the city's newfound wealth.
