Default Manhattan vs San Francisco

Its doesn't make sense to compare New York City to San Francisco because of the massive size difference (population, land) so let's compare Manhattan vs SF since they are a bit more similar in size.

Where would you rather live? And no, please no San Jose or New Jersey or whatever. Only SF and Manhattan!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That Manhattan view is stunning! Never seen the skyline from that angle!!

I love SF and all, but obviously Manhattan.

I've always wondered how much those town homes in that classic San Francisco shot are worth. They're quite cute.

In any case, I don't think it's much of a comparison. Manhattan.

SF is gorgeous and I want to visit pretty badly, but I have to go with my home.

I honestly don't know.

Weather-wise Manhattan wins, you can't beat the heat .

I love those SF homes with the bay windows (is that what they're called?).

San Francisco looks less dense than Manhattan and I love the fact of living in a house.

Its tough because I'd like a change in scenery but SF might be too similar as well.

San Francisco. Like Manhattan it's on the ocean and while I do love four seasons and big skylines/cities San Francisco has something about it.

I think SF takes it weather wise. It may not get as hot as New York during the summer but it sure as hell doesn't get as cold as NY during the winter. I rather have my weather be mild year round then have it go from extreme to the other.SF pretty much stays in the 60s year round.
