    If SF cleaned out the homeless, ejected a portion of the loser beta male species, and imported hot female models to rebalance the gender ratio, we'd create an SF worth the hype and rising house costs.

    ...Is SF rated highly? Everyone I know who lives there seems to dream of moving elsewhere someday.

    • Totally agree, the question comes from a false assumption

      I mean there’s nothing else like it, where else can a twenty something make 350k yr with a bachelors degree

      I would happily live in SF if it was the SF of 20 years ago. Today eff that. Way too overpriced, I have other life goals than spending 10 years of after tax salary just on a mortgage payment

      That city is fucking bananas

      You only have so much time. Value time over things / debt.

    • This has nothing to do with the city it self, no body is dreaming to live an "SFO" life, it ain't LA or NYC, it's like working in the oil rich gulf countries high TC and shitty lifestyle

      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

    • Used to, now the culture is about how much cultured bacteria you find on side walks living of homeless 💩

      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.

    LA is pretty overrated, and in my opinion, takes the cake on this one. I don’t think anyone is overrating SF more than LA. But then again, I don’t hear people loving SF all I ever hear is complaints.

      OP
      I think LA is properly rated overall but there are definitely certain areas that are overrated.

      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 think even with how much people shit on SF it is still overrated.

    Minneapolis is most overrated.

    • Intuit z9nkay
      Is Minneapolis even relevant compared to SFO or NYC or LA?

      Exactly my point. Grossly overrated.

      Being an American city, it is indeed relevant to the OP’s question

      I think I missed your point. I don’t even know what people think of Minneapolis so I’d have no idea if it’s overrated.

      Whereas I generally know what people think of SFO NYC LA since I know people that have lived in those places

      Y'all realize the joke is that Minneapolis is barely even rated, right?

    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.

    Highly overrated. The city is full of shit (literally, shit on streets) and nothing else.
