I lived in Palo Alto from 1949 until my mother sold it in 1982. Unfortunately, like the article above says, Palo Alto isn't what it used to be. Obviously I am a baby-boomer and would have loved to return to Palo Alto and live out my retirement but I guess Mark Zuckerberg and other persons like him, makes it impossible for me to return. I will be attending my 50th Paly High School Reunion next year and many of the people I went to high school with are fortunate to be able to still live there, some in the houses they grew up in.
A perfect example of how nothing stays the same and as it should be. Palo Alto was the best place to grow up in the 50s and 60s.

I grew up here also, and I think Palo Alto took a turn for the worse in the mid-nineties. My children grew up here also, and they hate Palo Alto and refuse to live here. They say the city is now ugly and the its citizens are mostly arrogant and rude, especially the most recent influx.
Once my house is paid off, I will buy a bigger house on a larger lot somewhere else where my grandchildren will have room to play and where the neighbors will not call the police because my visitors parked a non-Mercedes in front of their house.
