Fake Haight Ashbury Sign Dupes Tourists

Haight Ashbury is mostly a shell of what it used to be in the 60’s and 70’s, but it’s still a popular destination for tourists visiting San Francisco looking to catch a glimpse of a defunct hippie culture and snap a photo of the iconic Haight and Ashbury street signs. However, it appears that a popular Vermont-based ice cream shop is confusing the heck out of our city’s tourists.

You see, a low hanging set of replica Haight and Ashbury street signs outside of Ben & Jerry’s are drawing more attention from tourists than the actual Haight and Ashbury street signs. I pass by this intersection almost everyday and the majority of those times I play witness to this unfortunate photo opp.

I’m curious if the tourists realize that the real street signs (pictured below) are directly across the street. It’s a much better photo.
