They don’t want their neighborhoods turning into San Francisco.

"I would be so happy if I woke up tomorrow and my neighborhood was magically transformed into beautiful San Francisco," tweeted another user.
"Dude, last time I checked San Francisco was in the USA and a vibrant beautiful city." wrote another person.
Other comments included:
"As an Ohioan who lived in San Francisco for a time, I say bring it on. SF is beautiful, has great weather, is part of a well-developed public transit system, is wonderfully culturally rich and diverse, and OMG, the restaurants!"
"I would be so happy if I woke up tomorrow and my neighborhood was magically transformed into beautiful San Francisco."
"Last time I checked, San Francisco was part of America. Not sure what kinds of maps people use in Ohio home schools, though."
"Hi. I am American. Glad to have San Francisco as part of this great nation."
