    Not even fair to poor SF, because it's like a division 4 school competing against D 1. NYC is cultured, full of diverse interests, and hub to many parts of the world.

      ...and is a shithole compared to London. But tech TC is higher

    Both overpriced and overrated. I should move back to Trump country where I could afford a giant house and a drink doesn’t cost $15

      Because you're paid $13/hr not $130/hr.

      Google has offices in Trump country (well, in liberal cities otherwise surrounded by Trump country). E.g. Austin, Pittsburgh, and Madison. I’d probably have to take a pay cut to some extent, and there wouldn’t be nearly as many teams to choose from, but there’d be way fewer people with money to compete with in dating or buying a house.

    Surprised to see all the disdain for SF. Imo it's equal or a nicer place to live than NYC thanks to the weather, abundant green space and easy access to nature

      Yes, there are redeeming aspects of SF, but as someone who was born and raised around there, I can say SF itself isn't great, but the Peninsula is phenomenal. It doesn't have a soul or backbone - a tech city with little else to offer.

      SF's tech homogeneity gets old for sure. Definitely still prefer it over the peninsula. Prefer east bay over the peninsula too

    Dont move to SF before seeing first. It is nothing like NYC or even closer.
