Tom Dalzell has spent years walking the streets of Berkeley, observing and documenting the city’s many eccentricities. In his new book "Quirky Berkeley," he shares his oddest discoveries, from bowling balls as lawn art to a "Fish House" on Matthews Street, and presents profiles of the residents who gift their art to the street. In this hour of Forum, we talk with Dalzell about the visual and cultural idiosyncrasies that contribute to Berkeley's free-spirited reputation. And we want to hear from you: What quirks make you love your neighborhood?
