From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Haight-Ashbury is a district of San Francisco, California famous from the 1960s and hippie times. Haight Ashbury was a magnet for the hippie movement due to the availability, at the time, of cheap rentals on the large victorian houses of the district. Now any house in the area is likely to sell for over $1 Million, though the area still maintains a bohemian atmosphere.
Some find it ironic that a The Gap store is currently located at the intersection of Haight and Ashbury streets.
The Haight is still an attractive destination for teen runaways who hang out on Haight street with their dogs and sell Marijuana to passers-by.
