Southside is perhaps the most famous area of Berkeley, containing the section of Telegraph that leads right up to UC Berkeley at Sather Gate. Southside is still largely associated with the University and has one of the youngest demographics of any district in Berkeley, with the average Southside resident being in his or her early 20’s. Telegraph Avenue is the main commercial corridor with many student-oriented stores, restaurants, and easily accessible public transportation. The Kroeber Anthropology Museum, Berkeley Museum of Modern Art and the Pacific Film Archive found in Southside are perfect places to pass time with friends and family.
Southside contains People’s Park, the focus of Berkeley’s protests of the late 1960s when the on-campus Free Speech Movement began moving off campus. The protest tackled big issues, such as the Vietnam War and the Arab-Israeli conflict.
