If your normal home address is Denver you will need to go to San Francisco according to normal procedures. If you will be in the New York area though, you can contact the consulate there to see if you can attend an oathtaking ceremony in New York as the BI simply says you need to go to the "nearest" consulate
If you will be going to Philippines, you can also get the Retention of Philippine Citizenship done at a BI office.
What is the procedure in applying and what documents are required in order to apply?

if you are a Filipino citizen by birth....you do not loose your citizenship when you become a US citizen
Yeah, but they would like some paperwork filed and a $50 fee payed in order to document it. Better to be safe than sorry.
Medical Exams – A caller explained that the civil surgeon who completed the medical exam used the wrong form and then wanted to charge an indigent refugee to reprocess the paperwork on the correct form. What recourse does an applicant have if this occurs?
USCIS Response: Customers should notify the Director of their local office when they have a complaint about a civil surgeon.
