Awesome. Loved the punch line. SF has more history left, at least that’s the takeaway for me when visiting either. NY is more ‘happening’ and ‘urban’ though, and definitely better connected with the rest of the world. In San Francisco, I sort of lose track of what time it is and just exist. Great for relaxing!

My two favorite US cities! Though I’m a Bay Area girl that loves her burritos, I gotta say, NY has us beat on the falafel tip. And if you actually try to use BART as public transit, the charm of those kushy seats wears off quick…

Interesting video.  Both cities have much to offer in the way of nightlife, restaurants, and transportation.  But San Fran is on the West Coast which has more sun than the East Coast.
