Again, race might play an issue here – last time we found that African-American communities seemed to have a higher percentage of single women, and the splits might be helped along by racial divides (Oakland [female] is more black, while Alameda [male] is more white/Asian). Sunnyvale, San Jose and Mountain View come up about even between single men and single women, while San Mateo is piles upon piles of single men and Fremont looks as blue as a perfect day at the seashore.
It doesn’t line up as much on the east side, though, so take that with a grain of salt. Every time I talk about race, just refer to this incredible map that I didn’t make. I know about the West Coast, so I’m going to need your help with my analysis.
As a result of this work I receive numerous emails daily from interested blanket owners and collectors. Detail from mural installed in the Winnipeg Hudson's Bay Company store depicting aboriginals, Métis and settlers wearing blankets and engaged in trade.
Since 2000 I have been a consultant to the Hudson's Bay Company building a collection of examples of all of their blankets and conducting seminars at their various stores and in museums examining antique point blankets for their curious owners.Like I said with the NYC map, Kipling nailed it: East is East, and West is West, and never the twain shall meet.If you’re straight, single, and looking for love, my best advice might just be to go buy a plane ticket. If you read up on the age issues on my original singles map, you’d find that once all the men get old and die off, it’s nothing but single women all across America.Use the age range sliders to get it to an area that’s meaningful to you, I’ve started it off at 20-34. The only outpost with an excess of single women in San Francisco is Pacific Heights, although if you believed Wikipedia’s list of Notable Residents it’d be 80% male (cough).
SF’s Chinatown, which the racial dot map and Wikipedia point to as to the upper right of the word “San Francisco,” is actually far more gender-neutral than similar immigrant communities we found in NYC. Right over the bay, Oakland mixes it up a bit while Berkeley is a nice little gender melting pot.
Overall, these properties meet the basic requirements of both comfort and hospitality.
