Borders - Davis - LocalWikiThe Palo Alto Borders was my psychogeographical center. It seems strange to say that of a store, never mind an outlet of a giant and mostly uniform chain, but there was nowhere else I was so free to grow up. If you drive West on University Avenue in Palo Alto, California past the downtown area, you will pass under the train tracks, over El Camino, and onto picturesque Palm Drive and the grassy expanse of Stanford University. The Home Depot and the day laborers waiting outside stay on the other side of the bridge, but if you walk up University heading East, before exiting Porsche and Ferrari territory, you can see the hulking blue Ikea rising across eight lanes of traffic. The Borders Books on University Avenue at the geographic middle of this whole mess, has been housed in the former Varsity Theatre since at least , when I first saw it. Today, the signs look archaeological. Borders is joining The Varsity in the past.
