It's so to see how Telegraph Ave. has declined in recent years. There is still interesting shopping over the 4 blocks just south of campus, but the vibrant Cody's Books and the charming Tienda Hol, among many others, are gone. Berkeley voted against the "sit lie" ordinance last year, and dozens of people live on the side walk. One must step carefully! -- and begging is rampant. It just isn't fun any more.
