James Temple:

Generations have arrived here, each in turn believing San Francisco was perfect the moment they crossed the bridge and has been on a downhill slide ever since. That those subsequent beats, hippies or gays were positively ruining the joint.

But that San Francisco draws the most intelligent, creative and open-minded people from across the world, decade after decade, is precisely what’s so wonderful about it.

Who owns the lawn keeps changing, but kids will always be yelled at to get off of it.

    I adore SF and the Bay Area, but it costs way too much for me to even consider living there, sad to say.
