Among the 91 U.S. cities proper with over 250,000 residents, San Francisco was ranked first by per capita income (at $160,749[22]) and sixth by aggregate income as of 2021.[23] Colloquial nicknames for San Francisco include SF, San Fran, The City, Frisco, and Baghdad by the Bay.[24][25][26]

San Francisco and the surrounding San Francisco Bay Area are a global center of economic activity and the arts and sciences,[27][28] spurred by leading universities,[29] high-tech, healthcare, FIRE, and professional services sectors.[30] As of 2020, the metropolitan area, with 6.7 million residents, ranked 5th by GDP ($874 billion) and 2nd by GDP per capita ($131,082) across the OECD countries, ahead of global cities like Paris, London, and Singapore.[31][32][33] San Francisco anchors the 13th most populous #metropolitan statistical area in the United States with 4.6 million residents, and the fourth-largest by aggregate income and economic output, with a GDP of $669 billion in 2021.[34] The wider San Jose–San Francisco–Oakland, CA Combined Statistical Area is the fifth most #populous, with 9.5 million residents, and the #third-largest by economic output, with a GDP of $1.25 trillion in 2021.

San Francisco was founded on June 29, 1776, when colonists from Spain established the Presidio of San Francisco at the Golden Gate and Mission San Francisco de Asís a few miles away, both named for Francis of Assisi.[3] The California Gold Rush of 1849 brought rapid growth, transforming an unimportant hamlet into a busy port, making it the largest city on the West Coast at the time; between 1870 and 1900, approximately one quarter of #California’s population resided in the city proper.[23] In 1856, San Francisco became a consolidated city-county.[40] After three-quarters of the city was destroyed by the 1906 earthquake and fire,[41] it was quickly rebuilt, hosting the Panama-Pacific International Exposition nine years later. In World War II, it was a major port of embarkation for naval service members shipping out to the Pacific Theater.[42] It then became the birthplace of the United Nations in 1945.[43][44][45] After the war, the confluence of returning servicemen, significant immigration, liberalizing attitudes, the rise of the beatnik and hippie countercultures, the sexual revolution, the peace movement growing from opposition to United States involvement in the Vietnam War, and other factors led to the Summer of Love and the gay rights movement, cementing San Francisco as a center of liberal activism in the United States. More recently, statewide droughts in California have strained the city’s water security
