After World War II, there were thousands of surplus ships in the US' naval fleet, and hundreds of them were once parked in Suisun Bay (clearly, to guard against a Walnut Creek invasion). 30 miles northeast of the city, you can still find most of these corroded ships decorating the water. Today, fewer than 55 ships from the reserve fleet of ghost warships and freighters remain, all of which are supposed to be removed by 2020.
