The Haight district was immortalized in the
1960s as the center of the hippie movement and a bastion of
counter-culture and irreverence. Today, the Gap and Ben & Jerry's
sitting on the corner of Haight and Ashbury Streets are a good
indication that things have changed. But while the area has undergone
some gentrification, it still stays true to its hippie roots.
Haight-Ashbury real estate is located among a number of independent
local businesses giving the neighborhood an endearing bohemian feel.
