|About the Haight Street Shopping District
Haight Ashbury was the epicenter of the hippy culture and it could be said, still is. Locals in that time included the Grateful Dead at 710 Ashbury, Janis Joplin at 122 Lyon Street and Jefferson Airplane at 2400 Fulton.
You can still experience the flavor of that era at many of the shops on haight. Mixed in between those shops of the '60s up and down Haight, high-end vintage clothing stores and a number or exclusive boutiques and many hip restaurants have sprung up all with their own flavor and color.
