Oahu Back AlleysOahu Back Alleys

Not far from the glamour of the tourist hot spots, the real Honolulu carries on its business. Like anywhere, Oahu hosts auto body shops, homeless folks pushing shopping carts, shuttered warehouses, and eyesore gotta-put-it-somewhere public works facilities. These are the places you fly over and drive past. As you take off and head home, your bellhop will come here to pick up his girlfriend after work. Your trolley driver will stop for a beer. Your waiter will punch in for his other gig. Honolulu continues.
