San Francisco: City of World Class Filth


#221

Very long.


#222

The Sunset might as well be San Bruno. Has little to do with the City on the bayside. I learned to drive out there. Nobody there during the day.


#223

I wonder what dragonboy has to say about that :rofl:


#224

He already has, by buying in San Bruno:sunglasses:

Absolutely wrong, and I bet a lot of parents in Manhattan would say it is great for a kid to grow up in a big, bustling city. Hey, that is real life. Nothing wrong with toughening that skin on lil Johnny or Jane at an early age. At the most basic level, what is a parent supposed to do for their kids? Probably just to feed them and nurture them but a big one to me is to prepare them for the real world. There is no better training ground than the concrete jungle. Welcome to the jungle!!!

Again, friends kids who grew up in the Fab 7x7 and went to public schools here are doctors in training. Recent stuff…


#226

Concrete jungle is accepted. It is the poo, needles and aggressive homeless wackjobs that are stealing SF from law abiding taxpayers.


#227

Oh my goodness for once I agree with you on your Fab7x7 bias…


#228

Actually, I have a friend who moved from NYC to the suburbs. Except for not being zoned for schools like the Bronx school of science anymore, she says it’s been a vast improvement.


#229

Depends on where she moved from. Did she move from a multi-million dollar neighborhood in Manhattan or a slum in the Bronx?

Also, depends on where she moved to. To an upscale suburb like the Hamptons or a failed city like Newark?


#230

Bronx->Westchester. She’s happy having green space and her own yard. You’re not going to get that in Manhattan for sure. Bronx was a bit greener.


#231

Well, obviously. We all know what kind of a neighborhood Bronx is…


#232

Greener than Manhattan.


#233

Doesn’t mean much. Amazon rainforest is the greenest.


#234

I like when sf means all of sf, but then you go into dividing nyc into its boroughs, to pick on.


#235

Green is good. Being inside a bit of green is good. I dont think i could go back to living in a city with very little green. I am not an outdoorsy person, but it helps to see trees and pakrs around.


#236

Things are never black and white. We all know that :wink:


#237

Me neither.

Yeah. And cities are definitely very very gray.


#238

The amazon rainforest welcomes you with open arms.


#239

I hear it’s being chopped down to feed the people in cities. Clearly cities are evil. :stuck_out_tongue:


#240

No need to go to amazon. Tahoe is there, you can even get investing tips from elt1 and be well off.
