San Francisco is many things to many people. The popular slogan calls it "Everybody's favorite city," an appellattion confirmed year after year as Conde Nast's Traveler magazine rates the most popular tourist destinations in the world. Most San Franciscans call it simply "the City," with a capital "C," a convention followed in this book. Perhaps Rudyard Kipling summed it up best when he said: "San Francisco has only one draawback. 'Tis hard to leave."
