Google defined bohemia as: noun  socially unconventional, artistic people and the areas they frequent, viewed collectively.

The quotation below is from David Hockney in the 2016 DVD documentary Hockney.  It really struck me as emblematic of changing times and culture. I enjoyed the film and recommend it.

He said, “[AIDS] did change New York. I think it’s that that changed it more than anything else… Because when I think of all those people, if they were still there in New York, New York would be different today. It would. There would be bohemia still. And that’s the world I arrived in. And that’s the world that I lived in, actually.”

Peter Getting Out Of Nick’s Pool by David Hockney, 1966
