The SF Bay Area has the largest economy and can go toe to toe with Boston on nearly everything but overall both SF Bay Area and Boston are some of the most innovative and intellectual spots on the planet.

Between the two

1. SF Bay Area
2. Boston

And on the otherside of the sterotype coin Phillys one huge getto and SanFran only has hippy culture.

And Boston is not that much colder than Philly.

You could combine Bostons historical impact on USA with SF's historical influence on the USA and they would still pale in comparison to Philadelphia's enormous legacy and impact on the USA and the world.

1.Philadelphia
big drop
2.Boston
big drop
3.San Francisco

Get a grip people. Googleville, Fishermans Wharf and a Tea Party are no match for the incredible accomplishments that came forth from Philadelphia.

I'll say.

If the world stood still then you might be on to something, but it appears that you have a hard time understanding that 2011 is very different from 1789.

Sorry.

So the start of the abolitionist movement, rev. War, and the Industral rev. Pales in comparison to a piece of paper based off the one written in Boston 150 years prior?

San Francisco is so so lucky to have a cosmopolitan environment with tons of happenin' hoods. Downtown skyline is so spectacular for its size. This is one city that's beautiful and gets all the respects it wants while we stumble. This is one city that acts even better than its size while Philly is the opposite. I would kill to have a city like SF. I'd move there in a heartbeat if I had the doe.

Right on btown. Boston was in bloody revolt for a full year before anything of true significance occurred in Philly. Even then, what happened there could have taken place in Pigslop, VA.

What came forth from Philly? Nothing and cheesesteak! The Congress just happened to have met there at that particular point in history.

As btownboss mentioned: The American Abolitionist movement began and was fought from Boston and the American Industrial Revolution started in Boston.

In addition, Plymouth, Salem, Gloucester, Marblehead, New Bedford etc are all within an hour of the city. Easily one of the most historically important 50 mile stretches of coastline in the world.

I might add, beautiful as well.
