I am really confused about these people "gushing" over San Francisco. I have lived here 37 years and I am leaving for a small ranch house with a pool in the Sierra foothills in about 7 weeks[completely mortgage free!]...the Natural beauty of San Francisco is what it is all about, but the days of the real San Francisco when the city was for "San Franciscans" is completely over. I have had the big Victorian apartment, the gorgeous new construction on Liberty Hill and am now in a rent controlled 500sq ft Studio near Dolores park that will double in price when I move out. The city has become an absolute cesspool, they are building more and more condos to sell to people who don't live here and we are already more densely populated than New York. The public transportation [except for BART] is a complete joke and I don't know what you are talking about when you think the people are great because the demographic has changed so much in the past 15 years that the entire city is full of self obsessed whiners who think they are being filmed for a reality show. These cretins are rude, loud, bad neighbors and so self entitled they wouldn't even pick up their own trash because they are "above that." I will miss the clean air, the close proximity of the Pacific, the 90 minute ride to Sonoma and all the wonderful food resources. SF has become "Hong-FranSicko!" You can have it!

I love apartment therapy, but some of these are way too busy and the colors don't work creating mud. If I had to look at that floral mess of a painting before I went to bed every night I can only imagine the nightmares I would have. Harmonies!
