If you're not debating that SJ is in the Bay Area then you shouldn't be debating the validity of a statistic that groups SF and SJ together.

Perhaps I didnt do that.


Perhaps I'm referring to micro regions that Philadelphia is not afforded by the OMB?

Perhaps next time, you will be more direct. Instead of bringing up the farthest flung suburbs of the bay area to somehow conjur up images of similar issues in Philadelphia, you could just state your point. First you start with gdp numbers for SF msa, the big omission was not Santa Rosa or Santa Cruz, it was San Jose. Nobody denied there werent towns around the Philly cmsa that could be part of that cmsa, that was your only point.

You are missing his point. He is saying there are areas of Philly only about 20 minutes away that belong to NYC. SJ is around 55 minutes from SF and still gets included.

I have said numerous times that IMO SF is slightly more important than Boston or Philly and you just pulled up an old post of mine to prove it. However, the problem I have is when Californians act like there is no competition whatsoever and are trashing Boston and Philadelphia, acting like arrogant/elitists as usual.

Good then thats settled.

I dont see it on the arrogant/elitist Californians. Usually Californians are responding to arrogant/elitist north easterners, usually Philly for some reason. I dont see much issue with DC or Boston or NYC compared to Philly.

Thats not what he said. He backed off of SJ and started talking about smaller pockets, of which nobody denied theres a few that could go either way. SJ is 48 miles dt to dt and is connected on the SF side of the bay and the Oakland side of the bay. And its 42 miles dt Oakland to dt San Jose.

No, it's not settled at all. I believe SF is slightly more important than Boston or Philadelphia. However, all 3 are world class and someone can easily argue in the case for Boston or Philly as the most important. What was stated is simply MY OPINION, not everyone is going to agree with me.

You don't see arrogance? let me point out to you those post.

* Post #521
* Post # 523 clearly states "Its just not the same. In 2011, there is a clear leader among this group of 3 and its on the West Coast".
* And last look at post #530.
