Follow-up: How would you describe Monterey in five words or less?ROSIE STEVENSON | Student | San Francisco
A: People are more accessible here than in Monterey. They’re more interesting and open.
City Planning: It’s organized and beautiful.
DAVID FREIDMAN | Bookseller | Santa Cruz
A: Santa Cruz is more of a student town and Monterey is more of a military town. Santa Cruz, the beach town of the Silicon Valley, is not quite as wealthy. Monterey is cleaner.
Limerick: Rocky Del Monte playground.
ZRENEE ZAVAS MCCABE | Barista | Santa Cruz
A: It’s not as damn windy. I’m not a big fan of Monterey, though they have the Aquarium, which I love. I guess they’re one up on us on that. I feel like we have more of a local, live music scene and bands. There’s not a lot of subculture there.
Bowled Over: Windy and blue and beautiful.
