Yeah but the city of San Francisco used to have culture. Some random oil town in North Dakota never had culture. The tech revolution ruined it. I like living in places where artists and other types of people can reasonably survive too, even if they make less than me because I don’t mind that. It makes for a far more vibrant city when you have a mix of incomes and people. SFO is a monoculture of pasty white guys
What tech has to do with homelessness? Half of the US ships their bums here because no one cares. There’s no police or any law enforcement in the city (other than stupid regulations for house remodeling). You can literally shit on a police car and walk away. Too much money and the city officials who don’t have any balls to take actions and clean up this mess.
It has its own microcosm. Venice and Santa Monica are no longer the bohemian counter cultures they once were. Because of Snapchat google etc.
Fuck, when I interviewed at Google LA, none of the people I talked to even lived in the coastal communities since it’s cheaper more inland. That’s got to say something, when even those people make Google-level salaries.
I feel like SF is fine. I guess it’s overrated if people consider it like the top city in America but I don’t see why people hate it so much on here. The homeless thing sucks sure. Also if you go to other cities not named nyc and la and a couple other big ones, they really are all very similar. SF is pretty unique.
