How do you live in NYC? Have been here for 2 days and I just can’t wait to not be here. Live in SF. Genuine question, as my BF wants to move here.

Much better than SF. Cheaper(!!), better public transport, cleaner (midtown Manhattan is not all of NYC), safer and the bars are open later. And while a lot of people work in finance here you can also meet guys who work in media, art, fashion, entertainment, etc. vs seemingly every other guy in SF working in tech

Thanks. Not sure how anyone can like SF. More expensive, dirtier, less diverse

Streets piled high with garbage (NYC) vs streets piled high with human feces (SF)... pick the lesser evil

I used to think the same thing, but I’ve been super happy since I moved here. Visiting New York is nothing like living in New York. When you live here, you can create your own boundaries and decide which of the limitless opportunities you’re actually interested in rather than being pulled in every direction in a short period of time

I couldn’t see myself anywhere else. This city has so much more energy than SF. When you’re here you’re pushed to be more successful and ambitious and in SF you’re pushed to smoke weed and hike. Two different personalities and I identify with the former.

I’m so sweaty and it’s taking me an hour to get back to my hotel.

Duboce is the most SF corner of SF... Honestly UWS (from the 60s-90s), Chelsea. Chelsea is more Hayesish. Park Slope has some of the duboce feel but it has its louder parts too; it has parts that feel a bit like the mission. There’s also the W Village— although on a regular day, not during pride....

I left NY after 23 years, in SF for 18 months. I like to say I grew up here because I was here from age 17 through undergrad and beyond, when I moved to Paris. SF has the best air ever,, the seas is close by, and it offers vistas and scents that are unparalleled . But crime is high, homeless situation unmanageable and prices higher than Manhattan on all counts. I just closed on a place in LA today. I’m out! Walking out of Muni into New Montgomery and market Sts and witnessing a white, 30+ homeless woman after having just woken up and approaching my work isn’t cool, stay in NY!
