Well, we would say that the United States' first city is New York, its second city Los Angeles and its third city Chicago.
But broken down to a regional scale, what are the top three cities (in ranking) of America's different regions. I think a fair break down is the northeast, the South, the midwest, the west cost, and the area between california/oregon/washington and the plains.
So... what're the top three cities in each region?

In the Northeast, it is , obvious..... New York, Philadelphia, and Boston (The New York being #1 fact is pretty much undisputed, but there is a debate between Boston and Philly on which is 2nd and which is 3rd)

^ I think it has to be Boston second, and then Philadelphia.
In the Midwest, it's Chicago, a gaping chasm, and then...who knows? In the west LA, SF, and Seattle; in the south, Atlanta, Miami...and Raleigh-Durham? I think of Texas as its own region.

West Coast in my opinion:
Then the two runner ups being:

^^ PLEASE tell me that you didn't just give Raleigh-Durham a 3rd place rating in the south. The rest of the south will want to kill you now lol. I live here and it sucks a lot, but anyways. I think in the south, eventhough I really am not a big fan of the region, it would be......Atlanta, Miami, and well, NO was third, but now, I guess it would have to be Nashville. If you wanted to include Texas. Dallas would be up there too

In the Midwest, I think all the major cities should deserve the same rating, all unique and special in its own way.
Maybe Detriot for 2nd.... and 3rd to Minneapolis but its so hard to choose for Midwest

Hmm... I would say in the midwest that Chicago is #1 and Minneapolis is #2 followed by St. Louis at #3.
Eat coast, I'd have to say New YOrk #1, Boston #2, Philly #3.
West coast, Los Angeles #1, San Francisco #2, Seattle #3.
The other two regions I'm not sure about.

Northeast - NYC, DC, Boston/Philly
Midwest - Chicago, Minneapolis, St. Louis/Detroit

New York City
tie, Washington, D.C./Philadelphia

^^ I gotta put Boston in front of DC, and maybe even Philly too. DC comes in fourth, then it goes west to Pittsburgh and Rochester/Buffalo, then to Baltimore.

IMO, it's NYC........DC.Boston.Philly...............B'more....Pittsburgh.......Buffalo..Hartford I don't know about the rest.
