One wonders how, considering Starfleet Academy and Command is in San Francisco is they didn't know where Alameda was.
Wasn't it they didn't know how to get there? Mass transit would be mystery to a culture used to beaming everywhere.
There's little evidence that they "beam everywhere" in Trek's time. Especially to different locations inside the same city or metro area. Certainly in Trek's time mass transit still exists and probably even forms of personal transportation. (Like a car analog.)
Just because it's futuristic doesn't mean it's practical.
