Regional dynamics in the Bay Area?

What are the realtions like bwtween San Francisco and Oakland? Do Oaklanders look up to San Francisco as the metropolis or do they diss it as a yuppie hole? How fierce is the sporting rivalry between both cities?

And what about San Jose? Do they have a younger brother complex towards San Francisco? Do they support the Giants and the 49ers with the same passion as San Franciscans?

I believe people from Oakland are proud of their hometown just like San Franciscans. San Jose isn't much of a ****, it could be divided up into several cities like the other half of the Silicon Valley and you wouldn't notice a thing. Its all basically the Valley, there isn't much concern for Oakland, San Francisco, or even the local area because there are so many migrants from out of state/country, with no roots.

There are some interesting dynamics at play in the Bay Area right now. I've seen a lot of regionalism arise lately. For example, I'm not from Oakland, but some very good friends of mine are and they've indicated to me that they often resent being "clumped" into San Francisco's realm, like they're not their own distinct region. I suppose that's the downside to being just across the bay from them. On the other hand, its funny to me that San Franciscans often talk as if coming to San Jose (about a 40 or so mile drive) is a major trek. In turn, I think San Jose, and all of Silicon Valley, therefore have benefited from being a little more out of SF's realm of influence. (You'll see many instances in which SF tries to pass itself off as part of Silicon Valley, but in truth, it has little to do with the large valley companies, such as Cisco, Intel, eBay, Yahoo, Adobe, Google.) I've said it before on this board, but dynamics are changing in the Bay Area, and the rise of San Jose over the past two decades seems to have been a hard pill for SF to swallow. Here's an excerpt from a 2003 Chron article about a change in censuc designation that illustrates my point:


A great city forced to eat crow


Census Bureau decides we now live in the San Jose metro area
Anastasia Hendrix, Chronicle Staff Writer
Friday, July 18, 2003


San Franciscans don't live in San Francisco anymore, the federal government has decided.

Where they live is San Jose.

Well, not San Jose exactly, but the San Jose-San Francisco-Oakland metropolitan area, a classification quietly adopted by the Census Bureau. The agency decided a few weeks ago to change the way it refers to the Bay Area -- statistically speaking -- by ranking the seat of the Silicon Valley as the region's major metropolis based on its population, if not its popularity among tourists.

William Frey, a demographer with the Brookings Institution, said he suspects many San Franciscans will be surprised to learn that their city has lost its top billing.

"Although the name may be put together from a bureaucratic standpoint by just looking at population sizes, it also has symbolic meaning that's more real in people's minds," he said from his office in Washington, D.C., a city that, if census rules were applied uniformly, might be in Baltimore.

"In a way, it's kind of sad to see the demise of San Francisco, at least in the naming of the area. But having said that, I mean, times change and we're talking about a new century and a new economy, and I think San Jose is on the forefront of that."

No federal money allocation or programs are affected by changing from the previous designation of San Francisco-San Jose-Oakland. It's purely a matter of local pride and bragging rights...


Dont get me wrong, SF is great city, but so too are Oakland and San Jose. Like a young child, San Francisco is going to have to learn to share.

That article is very ignorant and really represents only a change in the way the region is acknowledged by the federal govt. As far as influence, I dont think there is any doubt as to which municipality is "The City."

SF might be younger, but it grew up much faster

I hate it when people try to start a SF vs. [enter Bay Area city here]. Yes, SF is great, but without San Jose and Silicon Valley it would not have the money or prestige it has. Without the South Bay's population the "SF Bay Area" would be unable to compete with SoCal. All of that new growth in SOMA?? Fueled by technology jobs created in the South Bay. This great projects the City invests in? Paid for, in part, by taxes that are a direct results of tech conventions. I could go on...

As for the South Bay let's face it– if we weren't near SF how would anyone in the world know where we were? "So, where is San Jose?" "Uhhh, about 300 miles north of LA?" Plus SF is a fun place for us to hang out and give the whole area a landmark.

An Oakland? It's sort of a hybrid: old like SF but without its pretentiousness. Always in the shadows like SJ but with much more of a "center."

San Francisco could fall to tenth place in California population and it would still be The City. San Francisco is the type of city that has the delightful audacity to take its 3/4 million people and hold them up to match any city of any size not just in the nation, but in the world.

San Francisco is such a special place it doesn't have to play the dumb population game or to actually believe that more people makes a city greater.

I don't give a rat's ass how big San Jose gets. Even with 2,000,000 people, you couldn't cross the Golden Gate to get there.

You may not give a "rat's ass," but its not really about size (in fact, I fear San Jose following the LA model too closely), it’s about economics. Silicon Valley is the economic engine of the Bay Area PERIOD (just ask the 49ers!).

San Francisco's nation/international influence is largely cultural, and deservedly so. But there are government official's all around the country and the world salivating for a taste of the economic and entrepreneurial infrastructure in San Jose and the Silicon Valley. That's why San Jose politics and businesses are watched closely globally (for example, all these places you hear about proclaiming to be the “home of green technology” took their cue from SJ, which years ago set that as its newest technology base).

It’s not about which city is better or worse. In the end, I think SF and SJ are lucky to have each other.

But there are government official's all around the country and the world salivating for a taste of the economic and entrepreneurial infrastructure in San Jose and the Silicon Valley. That's why San Jose politics and businesses are watched closely globally (for example, all these places you hear about proclaiming to be the “home of green technology” took their cue from SJ, which years ago set that as its newest technology base).

It’s not about which city is better or worse. In the end, I think SF and SJ are lucky to have each other.
i don't question the legitamacy of San Jose; I just see SF as being the heart and soul of the Bay Area.

It depends on what you consider the peninsula. When people around here say "peninsula", they are referring to the area that includes San Mateo County and the northern cities of Santa Clara County. The city of San Francisco is not included in the area referred to as the "peninsula" by locals.

San Mateo county has about 700,000 people. The population of Santa Clara County is about 1,700,000, but only a small part of Santa Clara County is considered part of the peninsula. In general, most would consider Palo Alto, Mountain View and maybe Sunnyvale in SC County as part of the peninsula.

So, in local terms, the "peninsula" has a population of roughly about 800,000-900,000 people.

The Bay Area as a whole is a distinct, and unique community, I think most people are proud of the Bay Area, just as much as they're proud of being in whatever city they come from.

My friends always used to call my home city "Foster Shitty", but most of them, after they left for college, realize how different and nice our hometown is. I think its the same for people, not just in the Bay Area, but pretty much everywhere.

I don't think people should get all sensible about what a really old article or someone says.
SF is The City, SJ the tech hub, and Oakland and the east bay are the industrialish/bedroom side of the bay...see? we are all happy!
