I think I'll take a trip out to the West Coast to buy some diamonds and artwork for my mother. Shall we, kidphilly? What say you, Gateway Region? Studded Leather, will you be joining?

Wait.

What's this?

Sotheby's does not have dealers in San Francisco?!? Only New York, London and Hong Kong have them?!? What type of heathens occupy this vile, wretched city called San Francisco. My lord! Hand wipes, please!

Sotheby's Diamonds

You are right. Actually it turns out that its urbanity that Brooklyn's got - in spades - now that it's gentrified so much.

As for Manhattan, here's an amendment to my NY pics, to reflect some urbanity, not urbanization. Sorry Mr. English Prof, I blew that one.

Dont blame me for pointing out Brooklyn's numerous and easily identifiable weaknesses vs San Francisco.
Brooklyn IS more desirable than SF. Why? BK has better culture, better architecture, better food, better transit, more diverse, better nightlife, more unique nabes and the list goes on and on. Face it, many prefer BK over SF. I would take Bk over SF without ever being allowed to step foot in the other four boroughs.

Judging by that pic, I think you forgot the part where Manhattan is not Brooklyn.

Really. That's totally uncalled for. I suspect Portland has a number of undercover bigots just like him. That's why they move there in the first place: to get away from the "Guidos" of the world.

I'd say San Francisco has the edge on scenery. But everything else is Brooklyn. Especially diversity. You have large numbers of African-Americans and West Indians. In SF it's pretty much just white and asian.

Portland does not have an Italian population, they are uncultured and don't know any better.

In other words, Brooklyn's small amounts of real urbanity are exclusively tied to its relationship with Manhattan.

I already knew that btw.

Otherwise, Brooklyn is a crowded version of 880 from East Oakland to Hayward.

I clarified that within 60 seconds, but good looking out.
