Streetwise

asked at Alamo Plaza

What's the difference between Alamo and Danville people?

I have a theory that when you move to Alamo they send all the women a package with a velour sweat suit and the men a Tommy Bahama button-down shirt. It kind of cracks me up. Danville's not too different, to me.

My son lives in Alamo, so I guess we have to think Alamo is wonderful. We bought a rundown house in Pleasanton 30 years ago and I thought, "I don't want to live in Danville." All of these daddies are going down to Silicon Valley or San Francisco for work and are never home. My son came here for the schools. I think the Alamo mentality is just fine.

When I think of Danville, I think of higher end stuff. And coming from Pleasant Hill, when I think of Alamo I think of, well, higher end stuff. Alamo is a little more parks and recreation, a little more country.

People in Alamo are rich but they are more hush, hush about it. They don't want to show off. People are younger in Danville and I guess they want to be flashy. But it's hard to generalize about a whole group.

They seem the same to me. We live in Alamo and my first thought was that the people were very warm. They are very friendly and sociable in Danville, too. Maybe I've just met the right people.
