“I don’t ever leave the Mission, maybe someday I’ll explore Berkeley”
It reminds me of a Sex and City episode where the Manhattan Guy says to Carrie or Maranda that he ‘never leaves the island because everything is available in Manhattan, why do we need to leave?’
Could the SF Mission area be a mini-Manhattan?
