Once again you prove that you have no clue what you are talking about. Seriously.

The Global Index ranks cities, not individual boroughs. "New York City" does not exclude Harlem any more than "San Francisco" excludes that sorry neighborhood called the Tenderloin. So, again, is San Francisco inferior to New York City?

And no, San Francisco and Manhattan are not close. San Francisco is nouveau riche. Sotheby's and Christie's don't even have auction rooms there. I would never live in a city where I couldn't engage in a bidding war against the Saudis for the finest works of Lorenzo Sabatini. Hmph!

This is what people were doing in San Francisco when New Yorkers were sending their children to Exeter and Harvard. Hmph!

Man, so many are jealous of NY. Actually, it has everything to do with urbanity. I am not going to feel sorry for SF falling short, they are facts.

Yeah, Italian-Americans love Brooklyn. You got family in New York or Philadelphia, Italian Frank? Frank is a very common Italian name, right?

Wait, Frank where'd you go?

But this thread which YOU created pits a subpar Borough with one of the most desirable cities in the world.

Dont blame me for pointing out Brooklyn's numerous and easily identifiable weaknesses vs San Francisco.
