    The worst thing about SF, after the Communists, is the terrible public transportation, requiring you to take a car everywhere, which is also a nightmare because the traffic sucks and you can't park anywhere. This is a huge, huge problem. Life in NY is much easier in that respect.

    Still, I'd rather be there than here.


    Public transport in SF is bad by NY standards, but by American standards in general it is very good (I grew up in the Midwest). I have no car here, so I take MUNI all over the place. How well it suits your needs really depends on where you need to go during your day. While you encounter the occasional Communist - even a Maoist on occasion - it's not that bad.

    My limited use of MUNI gave me the impression there were way too many stops.

    Boston,s worse. Every fucking stop light corresponds to a stop below.

    Beautiful shot. Watching the fog creep over the hills in Marin or South San Francisco is one of my favorite things in SF.

    On the other hand, being in the midst of the fog creeping in in the Sunset or Richmond is one of my least favorite.

    This is true for the B branch on the Green line but is it true of any other line?

    Sorry, but the only one of those complaints that's valid is the cost, outside of London SF cabs are the most expensive I've used. LA cabs aren't so bad on a per mile basis, but everything is so damned far apart it winds up to be very expensive (like $80 to get from LAX to Downtown LA). NY cabs are a relative bargain.

    I was also surprised about how cheap the NY caps were, in comparison.

    The other complaint about getting a cab "when you really need one" (like somehow that only applies when the bars close?) is a universal truth, regardless of city.

    That's not true. As long as I'm not in some obscure neighborhood, I have never had a hard time getting a cab in Chicago. Yes, even when the bars close down at 5AM (it's been several years since I've been out til 5AM). The same goes for the several times I have visited NY. I recall walking about a mile with some friends at 2AM through San Francisco searching endlessly for a cab to get back and getting approached by aggressive bums trying to get back Mission area where we were staying.

    My current apartment faces Twin Peaks squarely, but our new apartment faces east. I'm going to miss our view of the fog rolling / creeping / streaming over Twin Peaks and around Sutro Tower.
