      in the city that's still full of rich conservative white people?

      If he could afford to live West of Twin Peaks, he won't have had to resign due to his salary.

        west of Twin Peaks, the geography.

        West of Twin Peaks is a pricey area. However I have friends who grew up in the Sunset in the 1960's and 1970's (I may not be a native but I actually know people who are). The Sunset District is definitely west of Twin Peaks but as an area, the Sunset was definitely NOT a wealthy neighborhood back then...blue collar, conservative and, to some extent, gang-infested.

          I left out a preposition. It should be "in West of Twin Peaks."

          It's strange how the Excelsior and the Sunset used to be similar neighborhoods. Now, it's just...different, to understate the point.
