The palm,not the bamboo- That's B. oldhamii. Is that a Sabal palm??
Sorry Stan - can't see enough of the trunk, petiole and backsides of the leaves to know. Plus I'm not that good at my palmate IDs.
Where was it? That will help. And do I see any silver/blue on the backsides of the leaflets? But from what I can see, Sabal would be a reasonable guess.
Its near downtown. I was focused on the Bamboo. When I downloaded the photo that's when I noticed it didn't seem to be a Washingtonia that I figured it was when I drove by. I've never seen a Sabal planted in Hayward before. They even had a pair of King palms..not the usual old folks home landscaping around here.
Stan - I gotta go with Brahea edulis from what I can see ...
Dean is right, a definitive ID not easy with your photo.
I like that guess Moose as I do not recognize it from the photo as a Sabal. It has been many years since my visit to California and seeing Brahea's, but I do not recall the threads on the leaves of Brahea that show in Stan's photo. Hopefully those that have more knowledge on Brahea will chime in here.
not an Edulis. too bluish and the leaves too close together and upright. I'm going to say it's a Sabal, possibly Tamaulipas or Dominguensis
I think Pete is on to it. The bluish tint is different. How it ended up there is a mystery. Looks to be thriving.
Here's a Brahea taken the same day across the street.
