Yes we did. It had already been a "beaknik" area, lots of artists, rents were still cheap. The "high" street had lots of small boutique kind of shops, craft shops. It s where I first saw a Crate & Barrel, mostly dishes and cookware and they were in actual barrels and that straw-like stuffing stuff, kind of on wood crates, just real simple and basic. Eateries were all fairly simple and basic, some vegetarian places. And Second City was there, or close by (I have a lousy sense of distance, as well as time). Some of the streets were still cobbled too. I loved going there but it was not close to where we lived so I didn t get there all that often. The hippies started moving in because there were small coffeehouses where they could play, they could hang out and play their guitar, etc. And of course, hippies were on most of the college campuses. I remember being downtown and Up With People, all clean cut and matchy-matchy outfits, singing one of their uplifting songs in one of the plazas and a lot of hippies standing around watching them like they were aliens from another planet. No hostility, no degrading words. I grew up near a large university so we had a LOT of hippies always around, lots of drugs, lots of political and social gatherings, lots of police activity.
