(This is a offshoot of the Toronto vs. San Francisco poll.)

Vancouver and San Francisco are on the same coast and the bohemian cities in North America. Vancouver has been noted as one of the best cities to live while San Francisco is part of the economic, cultural, and population behemoth that is called CALIFORNIA!!

Let me use the question that the poster compared Toronto and San Francisco:

Obviously being from SF ill vote for that
I cant say I dont LOVE Vancouver though. It rivals or is even better than SF as far as density and natural beauty go but the amount of condos turns me off..I do feel like this is a better comparison though.

Gorgeous city and if this wasn't against SF which I love for a lot more personal reasons then I'd most likely vote in its favor against many cities.

Vancouver has been named the best city in the world to live for at least the last 5 years. I believe, after NYC, they have the second most skyscrapers of any North American city. That's impressive considering the city is only 2 million people. Vancouver has one of the largest Chinatowns in North America, 2nd or 3rd I think after San Francisco and New York.

That's not true, it's actually Toronto that has the second most high-rises (12+ floors) after NYC (and Chicago is third). In terms of actual skyscrapers (500 ft or more) Vancouver only has a few.

If so, only because lower Manhattan is largely office space.

Honda is a best car to own but most people would prefer to drive a Ferrari.
