Welcome to Berkeley’s legendary People’s Park, home of the freaks, land of the strange.

  1. Awwwe, man, I missed it. I gotta get back that way, maybe an extended urban camping trip this time around. And Ace, that photo of you pissing in that filthy urinal is Dada par excellence!

  2. I am 59 years old minus 44 years old that Peoples Park has been in Berkeley? So that equals that I was 15 years old then, but ended up spending my next year on Telegraph Ave. Yep I was there selling Berkeley Barbs and SF Tribes with a crazy fun, great people, named Pink Cloud whom should be a well known name to Berkeley. I was in love with a guy named Jeremiah “Ishcabibble” as he was known, from NY, but I had a hard time with the free love thing- so he found another street urchin and was making sand candles last time I saw him. What such clear memories I have had -to relive a few of them, would be a dream.

    • Beleive it or not, Pink Cloud is still here, sleeping on the sidewalks of Berkeley, playing his guitar, and prattling non-stop to every pedestrian who walks by!
