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

Tuesday, September 15th, 2009

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.

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.
