Ditto with Manhattan. While no longer declining, it has had one of the steeper population declines in the US of any county. 750,000 people less than its peak population in 1910, a decline of 32% from peak. Almost the same as losing one whole San Francisco in only 23 square miles. In contrast, Chicago lost only slightly more, 900,000 people or 25% of its peak population.

Manhattan is therefore no longer desirable! only maybe 2 neighborhoods there.

I wonder what happened to that troll. He doesn't seem to post much anymore around these parts.

Yea, it doesn't look too good:

Much of the area in the photo was likely flooded by Hurricane Sandy's storm surge.

San Diego <----------- #1
NYC/LA <--------------- best duo in the US
DC/Chicago/San Francisco <------------------- best trio in the US IMO

I'd go for San Francisco, if only because of the setting.

Yes, Chicago has more restaurants- 6,000! But think of it like this, those 6,000 restaurants cover a city of 2.8 million people and an area of 234 sq miles. San Francisco has a very impressive 5,367 restaurants with a population of 810,000 and an area that covers 47 sq miles. San Francisco has over 50% more restaurants per capita than any other city in America.

Weather- San Francisco. Chicago is way too cold in the winter and disgustingly humid in the summer. If the fog in SF is bothering you, simply head to the suburbs. I live in a suburb 10 miles North and wore a t-shirt today.... its January!

You can take the weather. I'll pass on a soggy wet SF Christmas. California's holiday spirit is so pathetic that I would rather endure a brutal winter. Spent a Christmas at my sister's in Marin once, and that was one time too many.

If you lived in SF you could definitely wear a t-shirt every day... under your sweatshirt or jacket.

While it's definitely not snowy and it does get warm in the middle of most days, the mornings, afternoons and evenings are almost always chilly. If you do go out in a t-shirt, make sure you bring a sweatshirt. Otherwise you'll be like the hundreds of tourist who end up buying overpriced cheaply made sweatshirts from the vendors around Fisherman's Wharf at around 3pm because it suddenly dropped from 70 degrees to 58.
