East Palo Alto (abbreviated E.P.A.) is a city in San Mateo County, California, United States. As of the 2020 census, the population of East Palo Alto was 30,034. It is situated on the San Francisco Peninsula, roughly halfway between the cities of San Francisco and San Jose. To the north and east is the San Francisco Bay, to the west is the city of Menlo Park, and to the south the city of Palo Alto. Despite being called "East" Palo Alto, the city is directly north of Palo Alto. While often incorrectly assumed to be part of the city of Palo Alto,[3][4] East Palo Alto has always been a separate entity since its founding as an unincorporated community and its incorporation in July 1983. It is also in San Mateo County, while Palo Alto is in Santa Clara County. The two cities are separated only by San Francisquito Creek and, largely, the Bayshore Freeway (the vast majority of East Palo Alto is northeast of the freeway, while all of the residential part of Palo Alto is southwest of the freeway). The revitalization projects in 2000, and high income high-tech professionals moving into new developments, including employees from Google and Facebook, have begun to eliminate the cultural and economic differences between the two cities.[5] East Palo Alto and Palo Alto share both telephone area codes and postal ZIP codes.

In 1990, 43% of East Palo Alto's residents were African Americans,[6] which was the result of redlining practices and racial deed restrictions in Palo Alto.[7] Latinos now constitute about 65% of the total population, while the proportion of African Americans has decreased to about 15%. A small minority of Pacific Islanders also reside in East Palo Alto, most of TonganSamoan and Fijian origin. East Palo Alto has the largest concentration of Pacific Islanders of any American city or town outside Hawaii.[citation needed].

The prosperity that benefited the Silicon Valley during the dot-com boom of the late 1990s largely bypassed East Palo Alto. The Ravenswood City School District, which serves East Palo Alto and part of adjoining Menlo Park, has struggled with low academic performance.[8] Eventually, however, the Peninsula's shortage of land and soaring property prices meant that even East Palo Alto became an option for urban regeneration. Until recently,[when?] gentrification has been rare in East Palo Alto.[citation needed]

East Palo Alto also includes a small piece of land across the Bayshore Freeway (U.S. Route 101) from the shopping center, a roughly triangular area between US 101 and San Francisquito Creek, formerly the site of a two-block-long retail business district known as Whiskey Gulch. The name dates back to the time when Stanford University, on the other side of Palo Alto to the west, was dry and prohibited alcohol sales within a radius of one-mile (1.6 km) from the campus. Whiskey Gulch, which was just outside these limits, became home to a number of liquor stores, bars, and music venues. Long after the university had relaxed its prohibition rules, the neighborhood still retained this character until 2000, when the city tore down Whiskey Gulch and replaced it with the University Circle office complex.[9][10] A 200-room Four Seasons hotel opened in University Circle in 2006.

Over 25% of East Palo Alto (400+ acres) has been bulldozed and replaced with brand new housing and brand-name retail establishments over the last 10–15 years (since approximately 1997),[5] including IKEA, Target, Home Depot, Nordstrom Rack, Togo's, Starbucks, Office Depot, Cardenas Supermarket and Jamba Juice, attracting an entirely new demographic.[11] The University Square community has become particularly appealing to young high-tech professionals and high-income couples, including many employees from Google, Facebook, Sun Microsystems, Yahoo!, and various other software and startup companies.[12]Jones Mortuary, Amazon, Facebook, Home Depot, IKEA

She dedicates her life to this business. Invest in your local florist. But she is one person, so please be realistic about your orders. Don't order at the very last minute and expect a masterpiece. Art takes time. With that being said, I highly recommend her work.

Needed a birthday gift for my mother in law and Your Local Florist or Palo Alto delivered the cutest arrangement for us. Even though we are on the East Coast we were able to make a special memory for her. Thank you so much!

This florist blew me away with their customer service! I had given her incorrect information for my order. The owner, I believe, Kannedy (?), tried all day to get in touch with me to complete the order. When all was done, she made the most beautiful arrangement for my niece who suffered a tragic accident and was at Stanford's children's hospital. I cannot recommend this florist highly enough.

If you want a custom arrangement this is the place to go. I had some specific requests about size, shape, delivery time, price range etc. and all were met. The arrangement was magnificent. Exactly what I wanted. I will definitely order again.

This florist went the extra mile by contacting me that my credit card was rejected and answered the phone call I made to them snd easily solved my problem. The flowers were beautiful and my family was pleased.

Amazing customer service and beautiful bouquets. I made a late in the day delivery request by phone knowing nothing about this business but they were the only ones who would still take same day orders. They were absolutely amazing: delivered on the same day, the bouquet was beautiful, everything documented by email. Everyone was happy. Highly recommend it!!!
