I’m not super worried overall about the long term health of SF & NYC. We all should worry about many of the people all over the country and maybe even certain other cities. But limiting myself to just commenting on these two cities, there are two things that I rely on.
1. How are we measuring this, dollars or vibe?
Will housing prices drop. Probably. Will the number of homeless people increase. Also probably. Will crime increase. Probably. Financially both cities will take a hit. But that’s not the same as dying.
