I think I hate San Francisco. - Page 146

SF = 47 sq miles, manhattan = 24

SF Bart mileage: 104

NYC: enough to reach Chicago (actual fact should lines be laid end to end)

Wait - anything south of Lincoln / Cesar Chavez must be included in SF sq mileage? Preposterous.

 Hmmm . . . I suspect it depends on the neighborhood:

I routinely walk between downtown and the wharf. Often between the wharf and the marina. Sometimes between the Richmond and the wharf. A good weekend walk from the wharf through Fort Mason, Crissy Field and the Presidio and ending with a movie at the Four Star or the Balboa can be nice. Walking from the wharf to the Zoo would be a bit much.

And Filbert Street makes a nice shortcut to Polk, so long as I don't need to smell good.

I live in a van down by the wharf.

Really?  Do you just move to a different parking spot, or have you found an area where you can just stay put?

 

Sounds interesting.

A couple travelers (Union-speak for non-local workers) live in their vans in the Sunset. Gotta move your van by 10, though, or the cops'll come a'knockin'.

i was just out walking the dog, and a cab pulled up and 2 ladies with suitcases emerged. this was their conversation leading up to the brownstone:

1: "so when are you going to come out to the city?"

2: (inaudible mumble)

1: "so when are you going to come out to the city?"

2: "what do you mean?"

1: "San Francisco!"

2: "oh."




(woman #1 was quite attractive, so i'm not sure if she actually meant San Francisco)

You can't call SF "the City" when you're in New York. That's ridiculous.
post #2187 of 2715
for some probably stupid reason, i don't like it when people call NYC "the city". Seems too Jersey-inspired informal.
post #2188 of 2715
the SF examiner (RIP) used to call SF "The City"--always capital T, capital C, even in the middle of a sentence. No joke.
post #2189 of 2715
That's fine here, but it's clueless to refer to The City outside of the Bay Area and expect people to know you mean San Francisco.

Everyone that lives in Toronto calls it "The City." The ROC (rest of Canada) hate them.
