I'm not sure how I missed this site, but there is a really cool blog about San Jose oddities, urban legends, and interesting stories.

I love the writing style and there are quite a few tidbits in there that were completely new to me. As a teaser, below is what Downtown San Jose would look like today if the Electric Light Tower was still here.
