C'mon, take a look at those pics again.
You can't honestly be bragging about that dumpy looking neighborhood can you?
...yeah. Sure.

What is wrong with the middle photo that includes the coffee shop and surfers? Looks like a cute nabe to me. Especially compared to the anonymous, might as well be the surburbs, dumpy hood in the Seattle photos. Between the two, its not even a contest.

On its own sure - but that wasn't the point.

Dumpy...I don't see anything "dumpy".

It's awfully shallow to judge an entire neighborhood by a couple of pictures.

Seems to me that this thread really belongs in the city vs city forum...and I honestly don't think you would be happy in Seattle.

Bwahahahahaha. So let's see, some folks judge that San Francisco neighborhood by a couple of pictures and that's NOT shallow. I make a similar judgment about the Seattle nabe and that IS shallow.

I get it now. Many Seattle residents are passive-aggressive and hyper-sensitive. I know what to expect when I move.

Let me try a different approach with this thread.

SF is denser than Seattle.

Seattle is denser than Spokane.

Spokane is denser than Yakima.

Cities are different. Some like density, some like room to roam. Why continue to argue what is fact based on some subjective opinion of what is best? What is best is not subjective, it is objective.

Those who insist one is better than the other need to step back and realize that what is best for you may not be best for someone else.

Don't you mean what is best is not objective, it is subjective?

GoBlue,
Tell me you haven't decided that Seattle residents are passive aggressive and hypersensitive based on some BS you read on an internet forum. Have you spent any time here?
I'm certainly not the one who is going to tell you that people are wonderful everywhere. But I will tell you that everyplace has it's share of idiots and know it alls, and those are the types that tend to comment on blogs and forums.
I doubt very much that the people in SF and Seattle are much different. I'm sure they both have their share of jerks.

Based on some advice I've been given by several people who used to live in Seattle.

At the same time, no, I'm not going to decide based on an Internet forum. And I will keep an open mind. There's that old adage about arguing on the Internet being like the Special Olympics. ("Even if you win, you're still retarded." - not very PC, I know). Which I accept applies equally around, including myself.

That said, despite some folks protestations to the contrary, I am worried about months on end of gray and no sunshine, and I don't buy that its "not that bad", not in a New York minute. (which if you've ever been to NYC, is half as long as a normal minute) ;p
