San Francisco vs. New York

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I've been living in San Francisco for a bit over two years and really like the place and the surrounding bay area.

However, I may have the opportunity to transfer to school in New York and try to start my career out there. Both job markets are tough.

I always wanted to live in a big city and San Francisco is a lot of fun, but it feels small at times (which can be comfortable). I feel like New York has so much that I want to see and do, and I think it's something I'd gain a lot out of by experiencing and trying out.

My family is in California and although I am not someone that has to be near, having lived around 600 miles away for the past 7 or 8 years, I've never lived outside of California, so it's a bit of a shuffling of life.

NYC is great, and can be a lot of fun, you just need a lot of money to have that fun.

Sf is more expensive than NYC.

As binge said, go for it. You should live in an alpha as fuck ++ world class city at least once in your life.

Maybe more expensive, but NYC is less affordable.

Really? New York's best, most world class attributes are mostly free. Neighborhoods, architecture, parks, arts, museums, cultural diversity, etc. Fine dining and nightlife is probably the least exclusive advantage a city could have. There is more cheap stuff to do in NYC than San Francisco.

Well, as far as housing goes, according to this article: http://money.cnn.com/2009/02/19/real...ion=2009031607 Metro Median Home Price/Percentage of Households that can afford it: NYC: $455,000/13.9% Bay Area: $575,000/20.6%

SF job market is tough? Seems like its booming, at least in my field.

I grew up outside of NYC and SF. My niece went to school around and in NYC and now lives in Brooklyn. My son graduated and moved to NYC. All three of us would recommend that you go and try it.

As a student you will find ways to get the most for a buck and enjoy a thrilling, international city.

Good luck!
