Been to SF countless of times... Don't know about the atmosphere of New York... but I'm quite sure it is worse since it is the bigger city. So, I'll stick with SF.

i'd rather live in oakland than san francisco though, but that's probably just me.
Not as cramp feeling and hilly right? I'm more used to cities like Oakland. I mean, it is pretty much the same population (but smaller) as my city.
I lived in San Fran for a year...it was alright, but it's basically all hippies and FOBs. There wasn't actually all that much to do, compared to NY. It's a lot more diverse in NY, I like the people more over there, and the entire city doesn't close down at 10pm. More of everything, and if you want green, there's Central Park.
san francisco is gorgeous. i definitely feel like i was meant to be from there. it jives with my whole being....it's the perfect size...love all the different neighborhoods...love the hills...the cool places around for road trips or weekend adventures. it has great energy...the people are cool...great shops...good food, cool architecture. love the weather.
ny...i'd maybe enjoy living there for a year or 2...but the energy there is higher pitched...the people are too amped up...i prefer west coast mentality.
There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.
Never been to either, but a friend of mine out of Queens told me the other day that I have that "New York mentality," whatever the hell that's supposed to mean. So I gues I could work with NYC. San Francisco seems kinda split between pretentious and fobby. Not that NYC would be much different, I suppose.
I'd take Honolulu over either though. God, I miss Oahu.
