This thread would be much more interesting if you made about the east coast cities instead.

There is no way SF makes the list except for those who live in SF. It is a small city of very limited impact accept in its own view. If combined with the peninsula and bay area it would certainly be the third city. maybe the second.

LA then Seattle.

Probably San Jose is next but there are lots of contenders.

The way irrational jealousy of San Francisco taints outsiders' perception of the City is always funny to me.

San Jose just barely makes the top three of the Bay Area.

Actually it makes up the biggest in terms of population.

Not to say that I agree with him though. Population has no meaning to me in terms of importance. Not for the city and certainly not for the suburbs.

I doubt that. You live there and suffer the standard local delusion.

The strength of the area is the peninsula and the bay area. SF is simply a connected tourist attraction. Cold, damp, expensive and generally lacking in any redeeming virtues except looking pretty. A hooker of a city.
