We'll let you have it this year, get em next.

I wonder if they counted Sounders in that professional sports teams thingie. We like them, regardless.

I've lived in NY, MA, CT, FL, TX, NV, AZ and, now, finally CA. Specifically, Northern California, about an hour north of SF in Sonoma County, the Russian River Valley.

You couldn't get me to leave here at gunpoint.

Oh, and NJ. Spent summers down the shore in Stone Harbor when I was a kid.

Washington came in 3rd? Washington DC?? Really!??!? What is this I don't even
 
2012-10-06 03:40:24 PM
Not surprised Seattle came in 2nd. And I liked San Fran the couple times I was there. So, neither of these surprise me... but DC?????? O.o It's the asshole of America! You can tell from all the hot air escaping noisily from it.
 
2012-10-06 03:59:26 PM
If it's chilly, just go east or south 10 miles.
 
2012-10-06 04:03:47 PM
Does anyone dispute this? San Francisco is my last stop, where I will go wait patiently for death, because if I am going to die I want to look at one the loveliest in the world while doing so.

Assuming of course I die of old age, if I get hit by a bus, I rather doubt I will be able to drag myself three thousand miles before expiring.

Also, once you get out of the Top Ten Cities, the drop off is pretty steep, after 15 you are in Suckville.
 
2012-10-06 04:11:15 PM
Nashville at 13? How about no. It's far nicer, though more boring, here in Knoxville.
 
2012-10-06 04:39:39 PM
To climb higher in the list, however, Chicago must address its increasing gang violence and high crime,

Except this only effects poor people.
Few or no people in the middle class are effected by this, which makes Chicago even a better place to live, because people who dont live here dont think it is a good place to live!!

Considering they counted Portland as having 2 sports teams, they must be counting MLS.

i've heard all sorts of lovely things about San Fran. many people would love to live there, if only they had money out the wazoo to make it so.
 
2012-10-06 05:21:13 PM
As long as chilly weather, walking uphill, and really expensive real estate don't turn you off, San Francisco has no shortage of positive qualities.

Was gonna say. It's nice if you can afford it. I found I couldn't. But hey, #5 isn't bad.

And I think you'll find yourself walking downhill just as often as uphill.
 
2012-10-06 05:23:54 PM
I love taking the trolleys in Frisco.

Is that a request, or an order? Either way, that headline is fabulous.

I too love San Fran. But re D.C., have you been there lately? I hadn't been for years and I went last summer and while it's been super-gentrified, it has turned into a beautiful city.

/yeah yeah, I get the point about hot air. :)

I've done a few jobs up there in the Sonoma and Napa regions and really liked it. I've actually been thinking about moving there myself.

I like San Fran, but man is it expensive (as with any large city, OFC)

I've always thought they should change the name of San Francisco and Las Vegas to Sodom and Gomorrah, respectively.

Well, I guess if you want to get it sucked, especially by a guy with a bushy mustache wearing black leather chaps, that's the place to go.

Cleveland is #46, Detroit is unranked. That old saying rings true.

I love the city. Probably won't move back there. Monterey is home now, and it's beautiful.

Did they ever get around to cleaning up San Francisco? Cause last time I visited back in 1996, it was by far the dirtiest, filthiest city I've ever been in. And I've been to Detroit.

As soon as I got away from the wharf area and started heading up toward the Presidio, there was garbage everywhere. I mean the streets were littered with it. Maybe I just went on a day where the garbagemen were on strike?

If I remember correctly, we did have a garbage strike, summer of 96. I was watching some old anti-pot propaganda movie in a theater in the mission, the guy in the movie made a crack about a garbage strike and everyone was laughing there asses off.

Spend a day here in SF these days. It's different. I will buy you a beer.

Seriously? Haha. Okay then, that makes perfect sense. I was there visiting my uncle and spent a day touring the city. I was aghast at how dirty the streets were and how unkempt the place seemed. I was like, "wow, and this place is supposed to be this great tourist attraction?" Good to know I just went at a bad time.

I am sorry but SF is a craphole. Only slightly less crappy than LA. Its impossible to drive anywhere at a decent rate there. Its grotesquely overcrowded. You can find anything in the way of real estate with a reasonable lot size (quarter acre or more). The one or two decent size houses/lots that are there are too expensive, unless you are Donald Trump himself. There is no free parking anywhere. Its full of dirty hippies, bums and raving liberal loonies. Plus if you are decent normal person who likes to occasionally drive your 4-wheeler or go hunting or fishing, there is nowhere to go. Its almost like everyone there is opposed to actually having anything to do on the weekend. I would sooner cut off my own testicles, fry them up and eat them than live in SF. Central Valley all the way, baby.

I couldn't get used to San Francisco. Maybe I just got stuck in the wrong crowd/job/neighborhood/time or whatever, but despite its left-leaning, easy going facade, I could never escape the specter of Money whilst living in San Francisco. The gap between those who had it and those who did not, is wider than perhaps anywhere in America and on daily public display. Every little piece of property, be it physical, political or intellectual is battled over like Thunderdome. The push to 'keep up with Joneses' in terms of income, fashion, possessions, is omnipresent. Half the city and it's surroundings are made up of a rotating mob of tech workers from foreign parts, chasing only pay checks and work experience. The freeways are clogged by leased luxury vehicles. Of course, I was there chasing that exact same thing, so that may have tainted my experience. Does anybody else get the same vibe from SF, or am I just wading through my own delusions, here?

Beautiful lookin' town, though.

What a bad place to build a settlement may look like

The pressure has increased sufficiently and the plates has been active lately.
The buildings were literally rebuilt on the rubble of the previous earthquake, leading to even more susceptibility.
Seattle has the same problem, but mostly from a tsunami.
