San Francisco is colorful. This may seem an obvious statement. The city is renowned for culture, diversity, and eccentricity. What you may not realize is how literal this statement is. The structures that compose the city are bursting with color. Look at our iconic Golden Gate. The Victorian houses of Alamo Square. These are iconic but only a small brush stroke in the canvas. Perhaps because the city is so often cloaked in fog, San Franciscans let the sun shine in with the walls of their homes.
There are ways in which New York and San Francisco just don’t compare. New York may have incredible architecture, art deco facades, the Chrysler Building but it doesn’t have legions of home owners expressing themselves for all the neighborhood to see. I gotta go back to my hometown for that.
