Bohemian. Hippie. Green. These are some of the names that have been coined for Willy (Williamson) Street area. Locally owned shops, restaurants, and entertainment establishments line the street.

The Marquette Neighborhood Association (MNA), established in May 1968, has been the force behind citizen involvement and participation.
