Some of us dont really need to brag because statistics, public opinion polls, surveys and rankings speak for themselves.

Just saying.

South Park did an episode where Cartman had to wear a protective astronaut-like body suit from the smug self-satisfied comments people were making in SF.

"It's like San Francisco is more like a European city like Paris of Milan".... Bwahaha. So classic:

As much as I love SF on the point of delusion I agree; but could be my own public opinion - odd as I think SF is great and also think the perception equally blown out of proportion by some of the residents

You can all decide...

In my opinion, the top three are San Francisco, Los Angeles, Atlanta/Savannah.

Seriously, anyone not listing NYC/NJ is in denial. No one brags more than them, and the runners up aren't even close. Not that they don't have plenty to boast, but even if we're only talking about here on C-D there are like 15 NYC-area bragging posts for every 1 or 2 of the next runner up (which would probably be SF or DC).

There are barely any people who post from LA in this forum...

I'd say, right now at least, that it's pretty soundly NYC, SF, Philly, Atlanta, and Chicago. The Atlanta and Houston pluggers have died down a lot in the last few months, but the Philly homers took their place, and right now, there's a couple threads raging that have gotten some of us Bay Area folk out in force - however, at least we're using stats rather than just saying we're "better" or calling other cities "sissies."

1. SF- on everything from income and education, to standard of living and number of Asians
2. NY- Just cause
3. Seattle- Posters here make you forget that the city is often voted as most depressing.
4. Philly- For a while you could not go an hour without someone telling you how vibrant Philly is
5. Atlanta- Olympic talk, Coca cola talk, Airport talk, etc
6. Austin- They will talk you into believing that the city is really in the Pacific NW, not in Texas
7. Chicago- but not from posters from there, just other people hyping it up
8. DC- Most important city because we are the capital
9. LA- We are more important than NY
10. Texas Cities- a number of things

I guess we will have to disagree because there are tons of Los Angeles/Orange County posters on this site.

The Philadelphia posters defend their city against attacks from San Francisco boosters. However, I would like to say thanks for your opinion because it's always nice to hear things from the perspective of a Seatteite.

I think as SF natives, we are very defensive of our city. People who have never been to the city have very strong preconceived notions about SF that are often inaccurate. What is so weird about San Francisco is that thousands of people who have never been to SF will argue with you to the death about their knowledge of SF that is based on nothing but media-perpetuated stereotypes. But all of the people I know who have actually visited SF or lived there loved it so much. There is much more to SF than what is portrayed in the national media. The highly biased right-wing faction of the media has shorted us to being, well, "the city with all the gay people". This is what many people immediately think when SF is mentioned. But there is sooo much more to SF than that. It's a shame that a huge percentage of the American public only associates SF with nothing but Gay people. Now, there is nothing wrong with being Gay. Most SF residents are known their tolerance to different types of people. But the reason SF natives constantly boost our city is because there is a huge vibrant diverse insider culture that exists there that is largely unknown to most of the country outside of the Bay Area and California.
