Telegraph Avenue is for Tourist Dec 29, 2010
It is the avenues and ways in the Town of Berkeley you need to visit not the streets. Berkeley has two major ways and three major avenues that you should not miss. There is Martin Luther King Jr. and Bancroft Way – Shattuck, College and Telegraph Avenue. Telegraph is the most famous avenue in Berkeley. Plenty of action happens up there. It is a great place to find attraction and fun, but be careful.

Moe's Books on Telegraph Ave. Dec 29, 2010
Moe Moskowitz is an institution on Telegraph Avenue. He was born July 11, 1921 in New York City and died in his home on April 1st, 1997. He was a living legend on Telegraph Avenue. When you thought of Telegraph in Berkeley you thought of Moe’s Books Store across the street from Shakespeare Books also on Telegraph. In the early days the two stores were raggedy looking. I bought most of my best art books from Moe’s. I did not have much money in those days, but Moe’s prices were so cheap that I managed to purchase a box of books on a number of occasion. He was a good socialist, because even lumpenproletariat could afford Moe’s prices. I do not plan to part with any of my books. Most of my art books I can not find any where. After reading Moes biography it was hard for me to believe that Moe Moskowitz was ever broke. I always saw him enormous head smoking a huge cigar looking at books. One book seemed to be his favorite. It was made up of graphs and the graphs had numbers in them.

After the new store was built prices went up. I still think Moe's Books has the best art books in town. The store has books on other subjects. I only bought art books from Moe's.

Anyone visiting the Berkeley area should check out Telegraph Ave., the famous street directly south of the UC Berkeley campus. It's dirty, crowded, and filled with homeless people begging for pot money and crazy people shouting offensive remarks. Some people will be disgusted by it. Others will be swept up in a frenzy of excitement and rebellion and end up purchasing an offensive t-shirt which they will probably never wear again from one of the many street vendors. Notable stops along this street include: Cheese & Stuff (the best value sandwich ever), Cafe Intermezzo (the biggest salad ever), and Smart Alec's (the worst excuse for food ever), Amoeba Music, and Cody's Bookstore.

Yes, this is absolutely true. If you came to Berkeley to see some people with guitars and bongos strumming non-tunes in non-time, then go to Telegraph Ave... it's the real deal!!!!!!
