    I can tell you that this key has been hanging in the same location since at least late summer of 2004.

    If it were “Where In Albany” I’d say “Key Route”

    Claremont ave, by star grocery!

    Someone in the city DPW or a utility company could look up pole B5366 pretty fast.

    Another hint: This site is approximately 200 feet (as the crow flies) from the Oakland border, and the house in the background of the picture has an Oakland zip code even though it’s actually within the city limits of Berkeley.

    I have no idea but it looks like an uphill slope, so I’ll guess somewhere near Hillcrest and The Uplands … near where they all come together at Roanoke

    You are close. But not quite correct.

    Based on these hints and the foliage, I’m guessing the Eucalyptus-Hillcrest neighborhood. The curvy streets plus straight city limits make for interesting situations. There are up there with the opposite situation from what NAParish describes: legally in Oakland, but with “Berkeley CA” addresses for ease of post office delivery.

    You’re very, very warm, David. This pic was taken fairly close (as the crow flies) to my house in the Eucalyptus-Hillcrest neighborhood — and my house is in Oakland (barely!) but with a Berkeley mailing address.

    … or any street, for that matter.
