Whoops. I misunderstood the poll, because I thought the list of cities was self explanatory. I didn't read down to understand you were talking about federal districts. I voted other, but I'm really San Francisco. It appears I'm not alone, as 'Other' is the current winner. Oh well.

None of the above.

North of Montana isn't an option.

Thanks W2R my rookie pollster status is showing.
Ha you understand exactly. Interesting with federal reserve districts only 4/12 west of St. Louis giving this an easterly bias.
Kumqat I hoped to catch our international friends with other, glad you're here.

Considering the nature of this forum, I’m more attuned to Federal Reserve Banks. Here’s the old Federal Reserve near me (San Francisco). I’ve never been inspired to photograph the new building. The Bank in Denver is a great tourist destination. Oops, it's early here, I meant the Mint in Denver, where the real money is.

Same here - didn't catch the "Federal Reserve District" part until way late. I'd change my vote if you let me.

Yes.... bad question at the start... you look at the 'poll' and think you know what is being asked... answer it and move on...

IF you had asked that in your title, more people would repond correctly...

What is HADA

I live in the San Francisco Federal Reserve District (geographically, but certainly not ideologically )
