It quickly developed into the neighborhood's "city hall" - the place where people always seemed to gather to discuss the latest news, problems, and concerns. Its from windows turned into a community bulletin board, covered with announcements of upcoming civil rights demonstrations, protest, meetings, and events. Harvey became the "Mayor of Castro Street."
