    We aren't talking about 5th in the state or even in the Nation. The NY Times rates a city that has been called "one of the most dangerous large cities in the Country", Oakland, Ca as the 5th top tourist destinations in the whole freaking world. What the hell are they thinking? Do foreign visitors get to sue the Times if they get raped or murdered in Oakland after the Times recommended the city?

    They are some nice hotels in the area and it is cheaper than staying in SF.

    I can't believe this. The only thing Oakland has that is in the least bit appealing to tourists is Jack London Square. The real tourist destination is San Francisco, and that's not even what it was.

    Idiot... they are not saying that oakland ca IS the 5th highest ranked tourist destination in the world. They are saying its on THEIR top 45 places to go in 1212

    In my opinion the NY times is a left wing liberal paper. It does not surprise me that they are pushing the OWS city.
