Stuart Brickman, Owner, Burlingame Optical: My name is Stuart Brickman, I'm the owner of Burlingame Optical, and we opened in December 1985. I live in Burlingame, I grew up in the area, I used to ride my bike down here when I was a kid, and I always enjoyed the ambience of the Avenue. Burlingame is close enough to San Francisco where you could be downtown in 20 minutes, but you can have a suburban feel with great schools and great restaurants, great shopping, and very diverse. The Avenue's been able to maintain the charm that it has, in light of a changing economy and the change in the type of businesses that have been here. There's a lot more corporate businesses here now, but there's still some mom-and-pop shops around. It still has the charm of the local area. It's a prime location, and I wouldn't want to leave here.
