San Francisco, Ca
This time last year, I was moving into my new zip code: the Marina District in San Francisco. My place was actually on the crookedest street in the world, although not the crookedest part. Living in a small studio with a very narrow parking spot in The City costs about a 2 bedroom mortgage in some Bay Area suburb and along with it comes a lifestyle of sitting in heavy traffic for hours and having your heater on during the summer months. My list on why one shouldn’t live in San Francisco may go on and on but like any other important person in one’s life, once you’ve come to accept it as it is, you’ll grow to love it. After all, it’s one of the greatest cities in the world and Lonely Planet even ranking it first on the list on their best in travel cities for 2013.
San Francisco is a very dense city, roughly 7 x 7 miles, and my place was in the border of Cow Hollow and Marina districts. What I love about the neighborhood is that it’s very walkable with lots of good places and boutiques, but mostly, it is very close to the water. For the nine months that I have lived here, I wasn’t able to set foot on the Castro or the Mission districts as I was very happy and contented running my usual 7 mile route all the way to Fort Point, literally at the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge.
