When: Thu., July 28, 5:30-8 p.m. 2011
West Oakland's 16th Street Train Station (16th and Wood sts.) was once a bustling terminal railroad terminal - until damage from the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake left it shuttered. Since then, it's served as a canvas for taggers, a historical curiosity for passersby, and even a backdrop for an E-40 video. BUILD, the redevelopment company that owns the station, has worked with nonprofit association RAILS to restore the landmark as a community space; together, they're hosting a community gathering at the station to recall its past and look to its future. The event on Thursday, July 28, includes docent-led tours of the station's interior, an oral-history booth, music, wine, food trucks, and more. 5:30 p.m., free. Facebook.com/16thStreetStation.
