12. I know it well also - it's right off Bancroft
And there ARE a lot of trees there, at least there were back in the 60's when I spent a lot of time in that area.

As a Cal graduate I probably should not say this, but the university is the 800 lb gorilla in Berkeley and definitely not a good neighbor. Remember Peoples Park? I do, I was working on the Shattuck Avenue BART station and was a reserve Berkeley cop in my spare time. The whole problem was caused by the university's refusal to even discuss the matter without resorting to force.
I was part of that force and I felt shitty about doing the university's dirty work for it. Most of the Berkeley PD was not happy withy how it was handled, particularly when the Alameda Sheriffs and Oakland PD got called in.

I guess things haven't changed much in 40 years.
