Using data compiled over the course of a year, the above video shows a day in the life of SF entirely from its Foursquare check-ins. It's an engaging watch, with heavy glow seen in the Financial District by day and the Mission, Polk Street, and the Marina by night. (Green is for restaurants, blue is for bars, and we're doing pretty well on both scores.) Overall, it seems that SF is the city that's happy to sleep; Chicago had far more lighting-up at all hours of the night than we did, and NYC was essentially incandescent.
