"Here you go, sir. Looks like it's Vanessa after practice, Jennifer behind the bleachers after the game, and Melissa in the parking lot after the movies. Would you like flavored or unflavored condoms for your bangs, sir?"

^^^useless post. Uncalled for.


The point of the thread is very valid. To say that San Francisco cannot be compared to New York as a highly coveted lifestyle choice destination is absurd. San Francisco has tons to offer and stacks up well against anyplace. If its not your cup of tea, fine. That doesnt make any difference.

Is it because you can no longer debate the issue?
I'm sorry. Did you say something, Smithers?

Then you go and say Brooklyn, all by itself, probably beats the entire Bay Area. Because a high psm and the Brooklyn Children Museum is more significant than Silicon Valley, apparently. Be serious.
I'm not sure what anybody means by Brooklyn "beats" San Fran or the Bay Area. However, anybody who believes Brooklyn alone has more tourist attractions/better restaurants than San Francisco (or the entire bay area ) is out of their mind. If we are talking New York City, then that is an entirely different topic, and I would agree with that with out a doubt, but Brooklyn is not a functioning independent city.

Thank You.

I gladly concede that the city of New York beats SF in nearly, if not all topics I like to talk about.

Manhattan>>>>>>SF. Agreed. Yes. I've lived there, its amazing.

But Brooklyn>SF? Queens>SF? Since when?

Er, not even close.

Totally agree with you here.

*yawns*

On paper and in person, SF mops the floor with any borough except the one you call "the City". Livability, excitement, big city vibe, amenities, everything. You dont feel like your NEXT to some place special, but rather are IN some place special.

Your iconic outer boroughs are quite frankly forgettable next to SF.

But to each his own.



I do. And so do retailers, so do marketers, apparel designers, major advertising firms and the like. And tourists, conventioneers, business conference organizers, hoteliers, airlines', etc. Not to mention major corporations, real estate developers and a host of other groups of people.

THAT'S WHY MANHATTAN IS NUMBER 1 ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH-Hello?

You dont care in the context of this comparison because you know you flat out LOSE. I get it, but why the run around?
The only borough SF wipes the floor with is SI and the BX. 3 of the 5 boroughs have SF beat in my opinion.

No, this never existed. Alpine NJ never did either only in imagination.

Imagine if I said the San Fernando Valley beats San Francisco. Hey, it's home to 1.5 million people and it's pretty diverse, right? It even has a few airports and some tourist attractions, are you feeling me?

?

I'd get hammered if I said that, and rightfully so. But this board is so NYC obsessed that if you say Queens > San Francisco some people actually nod their head in agreement. Madness.
