So those of us wondering whether to move to San Francisco or not, maybe we can get some good info from people that no first hand.

Give us info like, "is it very smoggy, or is the polution not so bad?"
And, if I don't hate gays, but I don't neccesarily want to hang out with them everywhere, is it possible to find a place like that?

And does the sunrise over the city make you feel like life can't get any better? yahoo.gif help.gif

SF is not the same as Berkeley/East bay.

SF is colder, more crowded, and just more depressing in general.

Berkeley/Emeryville is warmer, cheerier and better to live in. The weird thing is, they're just seperated by a bridge, but its that different.

Clubbing and downtown SF is cool, north beach, etc... but to live in SF is different. Its best to live in the east bay, and go to SF for fun.

i dont live in SF, but I am there every week

good luck getting $$$ for a place to live

homosexuals... meh, doesnt bother me. it's not like they start hitting on you while you're on teh street... unless you make yourself presentable on Castro street

it can get cold and major windy. fog is a beast

Chinatown is awesome! JTown rocks also!!

three kingdoms is right though. Best live near SF, not IN SF

I live in a small town, and I "have" been hit on by homosexuals in the street.

Why did I have to be born to cute? shrug.gif shrug.gif

San Francisco reminds me of a smaller version of NYC because everything is so crowded

yes, it's a great place to live if you can afford to live there

we own some property in SF

Born and raised there. no finer place. don't care about the sunrises. i don't get up that early, but nothin' beats the beaming sunsets on the ocean. Close to heaven. expensive ... yes, IF you can get in. it's only so big (approx. 49 sq. miles, 800,000 ppl). you learn quickly that diversity is a way of life, get use to it. gay, straight, bi, black, brown, white, red, yellow ... it's all good.

I would say LA is more diverse than SF. East bay is similiar to LA tho.

SF is okay, I would say its an ideal place to raise your kids if you are Cantonese, probably the best place in America to raise your kids if you are Cantonese IMHO. Personally, I need more sun tho.

they play tupac, snoop, dre, g-funk, too short etc... so much on KDAY in Los Angeles. They play Too Short more in LA than they do in the Bay. I wish stations up here would keep it real EVERY DAY like LA... hella fools in HP and Oakland think this.

LA is gettin down with some of the bay area stuff, like the hyphy... i know lots of SF cantonese who love it in LA and the scene there... and a lot of Koreans in LA that enjoy going to the bay area as a getaway. I know lots of SF Chinese who enjoy partying in LA Koreatown, and LA Koreans that get mistaken for Chinese in SF and are surprised at the police protection...

If you don't mind the gays...

If you want a place to live, then I suggest the Easy Bay (Across the tunnel).

I was born and raised in SF but unfortunately I have to attend art college in LA...

If you asked me, the air quality in SF is better... I can't tell if that's smog or fog in hte distance... I hate it here in LA... You call those roads? The water down here in LA tastes sorta of funny...

Housing is expensive in SF... Everytime I go into St. Francis Woods, it makes me feel poor... But I like SF better...
