Motorcycle Race Celebrations – Guard Your Bikes

The crowds on Cannery Row are often victims of motorcycle thefts when the event is in town.

The 22nd edition of Race Night on the Row will start at 4 p.m., with Cannery Row closed to cars until 10 p.m. as motorcycles park along the street. The event is billed as the area’s most popular afterparty for the FIM Superbike World Championship, which will be making its only U.S. stop at Laguna Seca with races Friday through Sunday.

A technology being deployed along Cannery Row is able to tell businesses how many people are walking down the sidewalk in front of their stores at any particular time of the day and even what gender the pedestrians are.

The device and software, called ViMo, is a vision-based sensor with AI analytics that can, for example, tell a business that 200 men of an average age walk past the store on Tuesdays between noon and 1 p.m. A retailer could then adjust its marketing to target that particular customer base.

The software does not use facial recognition.

Cannery Row Caboose

Ed Ciliberti of Pebble Beach told The Pine Cone that Monterey gave him a license for the 1916 caboose, which he purchased from local author Randall Reinstedt and his wife, Debbie. The state granted Ciliberti a seller’s permit this week.“I hope to have the new ground lease in the next few days for The Cannery Row Caboose,” said Ciliberti on the train car’s new business name.

Getting real close to Doc’s.

On July 13, the aquarium purchased a two-story, oceanfront structure located between its Open Sea exhibit wing and Pacific Biological Laboratories from Frances Yee for $2.4 million.

“The building at 810 Cannery Row was acquired from the family of the late Jack Yee, whose father, Won Yee, was the model for the character of grocer Lee Chong, proprietor of the Wing Chong Market,” Monterey Bay Aquarium spokesman Emerson Brown told The Pine Cone

End Of The Line For Cannery Row Caboose

Cannery Row™ is changing, along the lines of less Steinbeck and more Stockton.

Ciliberti purchased the historical caboose for $27,000 with the expectation to not only keep and maintain the piece of history and landmark in Cannery Row, but to also run an antique and collectibles business out of it as the previous owners did. He recently paid upward of $20,000 for the railroad memorabilia inventory owned by the caboose’s previous owners Debbie and Randy Reinstedt.

“I didn’t know – I purchased it with the idea of keeping and knowing that it would stay local and hopefully it would continue as a business,” said Ciliberti, noting that he had bought it under certain assumptions but had not yet talked with the city about it. “I recently purchased all the memorabilia with the hope to continue on the same path (as the previous owners).”

“I was really wanting to make sure that nobody out of the area was going to take it,” said Ciliberti, a Realtor with Keller Williams and Peninsula resident since 1982. “It’s a piece of history and a landmark.”
Although the Reinstedts received several offers with one prospective buyer willing to pay substantially higher than the asking price, Debbie Reinstedt said the couple feel good about the caboose’s new owner.

The 102-year old train car owned by Monterey Peninsula couple Randy and Debbie Reinstedt since 1974 is up for sale for $27,000.

Located between Prescott and Hoffman avenues and adjacent to the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s new Center for Ocean Education and Leadership, the caboose has long been home to the couple’s antique and railroad memorabilia shop called Books, Bears & Railroad Wares. But the Reinstedts are now ready to let it go.

“My husband bought it and put me in it,” quipped Debbie Reinstedt, 79, noting that the couple has owned the caboose for 44 years and how difficult it’s been to reach a point of wanting to sell it. Randy Reinstedt, 83, is a noted Monterey Peninsula author.

Monterey Now Eyeing Aquarium For More Rent

P.G. not the only town looking under rocks in the tide pools for treasures.

On Tuesday night, the Monterey City Council voted 3-2 to hire an appraiser to evaluate the land.

Several residents spoke against the appraisal, asking why the city wants to spend $31,000 of the tideland fund, but Monterey City Manager Mike McCarthy says the lease agreement allows the city to perform rent review.

“Our lease with the aquarium for the tidelands requires a review on the rent,” McCarthy said.

One dollar per year is all the State Lands Commission wanted when the aquarium first asked to build on the tidelands in 1981.
