You left out the Market on Willow Road as well as great places like Mardini's, Menlo BBQ and Jonathan's Fish and Chips.

You forgot to mention Peninsula School The alternative school for decades.
Awesome kids come out of this place.

It's the Willows, not The Willows. Capitalizing "The" is pointless and ugly. Did The Beatles play at Candlestick? Did my dad visit The USSR before it broke up? Do you know The Muffin Man? Otherwise, nice article, thanks.

I love the Willows and have been here for 15 years. It is one of the few places remaining that allows a person to escape from the noise and (in my opinion) oppressive opulence of the surrounding communities. I fear that the "Facebookification" of the neighborhood may be inevitable, however.

Sorry, but further commenting on this topic has been closed.
