i grew up around this neighborhood area. please include the fact that the cost of living in this area is now sky-high. there used to be a middle class in palo alto. the Gunn Alumni Association allows alums to contribute memories they have of palo alto as it was some years ago

"Stern took over the house in 2000." From her parents presumably, so she's taking full advantage of Prop. 13 and paying peanuts in property taxes. I wonder if her neighbors know that as well.

How pathetic Palo Alto.
