The "boutique lifestyle" in Hayes Valley

Out of the mud grows the lotus, as Don Sherwood used to say. Amid the traffic jams and the accidents, a "lifestyle" blossoms. From the Chronicle:

"It's one of the few neighborhoods that really encourages the boutique lifestyle," says 29-year-old Jenny Chung, who opened Acrimony clothing boutique in Hayes Valley in 2008. "It's about well-curated shops and edgy designers with unique perspectives."

Has anyone tried shopping in Hayes Valley lately? It's nice in theory to ban chain stores, except when you realize the poor can't shop there- gentrification, lets call it what it is.

Anyone who knows that neighborhood would have a hard time accepting the notion that what the city has done there represents any kind of progress. Chronic traffic jams and boutiques! Yes, I'll pass on that.
