Dock of the Bay… Episode 7: Tourism

Tourism is an aspect of Sausalito that is unavoidable. At certain times of year in certain parts of town, it’s possible to escape its reach, but come summertime on a Sunday afternoon on Sausalito’s main street,  the pervasiveness of the tourist economy hits you square in the face. Local comedian Arthur Gaus was recruited to lend an eye on the scene. His observations are placed alongside tourism facts from former Sausalito Historical Society President Larry Clinton, insights from veteran panhandler Peter Romanowsky, and comments from artist and Sausalito tourist David Shrigley.

Dock of the Bay… Episode 6: Anchor Outs

Sausalito has some of the most expensive real estate in the country — million dollar homes stack the hillsides, and even parking spaces command a hefty price tag. Amongst this scene, there exists a community known as anchor outs or live-aboards that are navigating the waters of Sausalito’s real estate and living rent free in middle of Richardson’s Bay. In this episode, Ale Eckstrom, who has lived anchored out since 1963, explains a life in which rent is paid not in money, but in attention and in hardship.
