Colma, CA is a Land of Fog and Cemeteries and Shut-Down Car Dealerships

Here’s Colma (nee Lawndale until 1941), CA, the West’s #1 necropolis. Why does it have its own BART station and musical? No one knows.

But what it does have includes car dealerships (both kinds – the dead and the living dead), fog, and, of course, cemeteries. Truly, it is the Land of Wind and Ghosts.

A look down Serramonte Boulevard.

Not too long ago, Tom Hanks got his giant black Lexus from a dealership on this street, but all the Lexuseses are gone now. Will they return? No one knows.

See you there, on the next dreaded sunny day.

    Lol, that’s so true, I always go by there and wonder what is up with all the dealerships and cemeteries nearby. I didn’t know that Tom Hanks bought his Lexus here.

    Wow how that street has changed in 10 years. When I was first living in the Bay Area (in Daly City) Serramonte Blvd was the main route to work for my husband and me. It was a thriving and busy street. Now it looks like a ghost town. I haven’t been by there in years since we moved.

    @ pussreboots:

    I wouldn’t say it’s really a ghost town, but after you cross that Target on Serramonte Blvd, it does start to look like one. Not to mention that at nights, Colma seems like a dead city.
