San Francisco Ranks Third Most Livable City for People 35 and Under

TopCities.jpg
The Livabiity Index: The 35 Best US Cities For People Under 35
Vocativ

San Francisco is hella expensive.

The average rent alone is the highest in the country at approximately $4,000 dollars for a two-bedroom.

Ouch. But wait -- everyone already knows that. So what's to keep the 35-and-under crowd from packing up, breaking down and reluctantly moving back with the parentals postgrad?

Easy. San Francisco has cheap beer, low unemployment, reliable transportation and reasonably priced manicures and pedicures. Duh.

Or at least those are some of the factors considered by the folks at Vocativ when they determined that San Francisco is in fact the third most livable city in the U.S. for young adults.

Thank you Vocativ for reminding those still in their "post graduate delirium" that San Francisco ranks among the nation's highest average salaries and lowest cost for quality weed.

We're gonna make it after all.

They must not own cars or need public transit, and would have to have trust fund baby status to afford apartments then.

It's a great place if you can afford it... without an inheritance or gainful employment, it feels like a long term visit at best...

So true..also read regular People on Avg. spend 70% of their income to just pay rent to live in Sf and that's just for a room sometimes. No wonder they only eat Burritos and cheap beers or become Vegan including riding a bicycle..

Not too far under 35, of course, because San Francisco despises families with children.

The fact that they used "reliable transportation" as one of the reasons leads me to believe one of the following: A) The author has never actually been to San Francisco. B) The author is referring to private tech buses. C) Both A and B. No matter what you pick, this article is full of BS.

Under 35 can afford it because they get 5 people in a 2 bedroom and split the costs and make the lives of all of us over 35 (who can afford to live alone) miserable with all their noise & banging around !

I guess the under 35 crowd is much wealthier then in my day. We couldn't afford $7000/month rent.

And the most miserable place for those of us who are made that way by the entitlement the 35 & under bring with them!

It was and it could be again, if the city father&mothers would set limits on airbnb and our Mayor would stop trying to be the 'most hip & popular' and just do his job.
