Review of Berkeley, California

No more hippie love here
Star Rating - 4/23/2011
The 60's have left Berkeley and now it is about MONEY...and the people there have plenty of it and nice hybrid cars (looks like 2 per household) and with a great bicycle community there...people should be bicycling more not driving in this small area town. They are so sick of the poor people they are getting ready to implement a "sit/lie ordinance" to cite or jail homeless people!! NICE!!!! (sarcasm). The UC Berkeley students are not much better...growing numbers of out-of-state spoiled rich students who don't care about rising tuition fees (a regressive tax on the working & poor class) and are indifferent to local mom & pop businesses.
