Every city at some point has to decide whether it wants to become a museum version of itself with an ever-increasing admission price, or remain the open, growing culture that led to it becoming, you know, a city in the first place. San Francisco long ago chose to become the former option, and a tech economy born in Silicon Valley, plus its physical beauty, allowed it to do so. Like any well-curated museum, it’s a beautiful place to visit, but I wouldn’t want to live there.
