SF newbie here. Relocating end of summer and trying to figure out which neighborhoods i should be shooting for. I like being social, so would ideally be eyeing lively neighborhoods with fellow yuppies. Also trying to figure out if having a car makes sense in the city. Are places with garages hard to come by? Any recs?

If you’re looking for a younger and “hipper” crowd I’d check out the Marina, Russian Hill, North Beach or upper Pac Heights areas. Polk St, Fillmore St, Columbus and any major street in the Marina are all really happening spots. That being said they’re also the most expensive.

I’ve lived in the city for 4 years without a car and don’t envy anyone that has one. Street parking is a nightmare and garages are expensive AF. The city’s so small and public transport is good enough that you only need a car if you’re going anywhere else in the Bay or further. If you’re going to mainly spend your time in the city don’t bring it is my advice.


Ask me anything - born there


DMed you!

Hello everyone, need a help from you.

Previously my HRA amount was 96000 per annum so I was submitting a rental agreement of full hra without giving pan card details of myself and first party.

Now I have recently joined a new company and here hra is 2.7LPA.

How can I claim the full hra amount? I live in a rented house where agreement is between owner and my dad. Also owner will not accept for a fake agreement too.

Any other alternative do I have to claim HRA? Your inputs are welcome here

Does anyone here have a serious invisible disability or chronic illness and, if so, do you think it’s better to tell your firm about this or hide it because of the stigma (you are weak, might drop the ball, etc)? I read an article about a Skadden partner who hid her cancer diagnosis and I am wondering about this. Do you think this changes for mental v physical v neurodiverse people? Anyone know firms who support lawyers w disabilities? I am aware of the ADA but my question is not strictly legal.
