73. SF as "The City" comes from outer areas.
My parents, and grandparents (who were married in The City in 1900), lived elsewhere and always called SF "The City," as do I. For too many years that is exactly what it was in northern and central california -- the City. Even in Oakland, SF was "the City."

The SF media picked it up at some time - prob Herb Caen - and ran with it for PR.
