Skateboarder in West Oakland

A skateboarder passes a bent street sign marking Mandela Parkway in Oakland, Calif., on Thursday, Dec. 12, 2013. The road, a four lane thoroughfare traversing a gritty, largely industrial section of West Oakland, connects the first subway stop outside San Francisco with the retail outlets of Emeryvillle.(Photo/Noah Berger)
