The view of Oakland from the top of the Tribune Tower

The Tribune Tower is an iconic landmark in Oakland. It used to house the city's newspaper. Now, there's a restaurant downstairs where the printing presses used to be and the rest of the building consists of offices. A colleague has an office there with access to the very top where the clock is.

It was really neat to see the city from a different perspective.

This is looking west, towards Broadway, the federal building, and Civic Center Plaza:

The island in the background is Alameda, Murilee Martin's famed Island That Rust Forgot.

Lake Merritt and Oakland Hills:

I took this only because the Wells Fargo sign, which everyone sees on a daily basis from the street level, is HUGE from up on the 22nd floor:
