Cool Hunting Video Presents: Cool Hunting's Oakland

We take you on a tour of Oakland lead by those who know it best: local artists and business owners

For this video we traveled to Oakland, CA to get to know the city by talking to the people who call it home. The resulting documentary visits independently-owned businesses—looking at bikes at Manifesto, magazines at Issues and Bakesale Betty's fried chicken sandwich—as well as spends a little quality time with artist Nat Russell. Last but not least, we climb the clock tower with machinist Kevin Binkert, who maintains the landmark.
