Just how much time do you spend wandering around the streets of Berkeley for this to be such a hindrance to enjoying your own life?


About 10 minutes, because this happens 3 to 5 times from different bums in a period of 10 minutes.

For what it's worth, I lived in Berkeley for 4 years, and the only people I ever saw going poop were fraternity members not homeless people.

Ever been to Salt Lake City? It's surreal. Could be your city...

Nope.

Bay Area is generally defined as the 9 counties around the Bay with Santa Cruz sometimes added on even though it isn't truly on the Bay. Sacramento is not Bay Area. I lived in Sacramento for a while, and now I live in Marin. They are worlds apart.


Yeah. I think some Sacramento-area people consider themselves part of the same region as the Bay Area as a general "NorCal" region. Indeed, Sacramento does have many things in common with the Bay Area that it does not have in common with the rest of the state. But overall Sacramento-Davis-Stockton is a different urban area with some similarities to the Bay Area rather than part of the Bay Area. (Much like, say, Mendocino County is in some ways similar to the Bay Area but is definitely not a part of it.)

Anyway, you already decided, but I was going to say Penn. Berkeley's great, too, but the two are so similar on most metrics that money is the main difference, and Berkeley is slightly more expensive.

Thanks. I hope I end up liking it as much as you do.
