It's "The City" to locals, "Frisco" to tourists, but one thing remains for sure - you will not find, anywhere on Earth, a comparable combination of great food, ethnic diversity, architectural interest, natural beauty, easy sex or easy money.
Sure, it's got cold summers and absurdly overpriced real estate, but nobody's perfect..
A lot of people seem to be under the impression that you must be gay, Asian, rich, a hobo, or a yuppie to fit in in San Francisco. Clearly these people are hanging out with the wrong crowd. San Francisco is beautiful. The country we live in is so stereotyped for a reason: the majority of it really is a bunch of highly Christian white racists. San Francisco is a place that breaks this mold. My city is the future. It's called diversity people, learn to get used to it. Also learn to get used to extreme Bay pride. There's a reason people from the city are so proud of it; it's because San Francisco is truly amazing. And take a guess why it's so expensive to live here. It's only because who wouldn't want to??
The home of the hyphy movement, amazing chinese food, big hills, a gorgeous bay, fog, really nice parks, the mission, good weed, the shittiest soccer fields ever, and the summer of love.
Don't call it frisco.
Girl: do me.
Boy: I'm from frisco.
Girl: no you're not. you call it frisco.
(In the RC Church, St. Francis is the patron saint of exorbitant house prices, sanctimonious hippies, solipsistic entrepeneurs, fabulous mincers, and lightning-fast metermaids.)
Levi's and T's are the best now all right
Folsom, Folsom street on the way to Polk and Castro
You don't find them finer
Freedom, freedom is in the air, yeah
Searching for what we all treasure: pleasure
Take me to the bay, lead me to it, now, now
San Francisco / Oh I love ya / Yeah
