NY has far more companies then this but many of these are not F500 and some arent even NY Area companies. off the top of my head,
Sony is Japanese
News Corp is Australian
Gap is HQed in San Francisco
ABC is owned by Disney, which is HQed in Los Angeles

what do you mean? headquartered here or have a presence here?
many of the companies in the list do not have HQ in New York, but ifyou mean presence I would assume everyone of the fortune 500 companies has some presence in New York.

What's the use of such a post where the thread asks tol list companies?
By the way Fortune 500 is a list of US companies, so if you talk about cities outside the US it's Global 500 companies.

Neither Warsaw nor Manila are in the top 10:

1 Tokyo Japan 52
2 Paris France 27
3 New York U.S. 24
4 London Britain 23
5 Beijing China 15
6 Seoul South Korea 9
7 Toronto Canada 8
8 Madrid Spain 7
8 Zürich Switzerland 7
9 Houston U.S. 6
9 Osaka Japan 6
9 Munich Germany 6
9 Atlanta U.S. 6
10 Rome Italy 5
10 Düsseldorf Germany 5

I did this last year, too lazy to do it this year cause the NY Metro covers 4 states...anywho, THE REASON WHY THERE ARE WEIRD RANKINGS IS BECAUSE GE IS THE BIGGEST COMPANY IN CT, CITIGROUP IS THE BIGGEST COMPANY IN NY AND JOHNSON & JOHNSON IS THE BIGGEST COMPANY IN NJ.

The UK is in a strange situation. Many companies have their registered offices in London, despite not actually being run from there. If by headquarters you mean the office that the decisions are made in, rather than the registered office, Manchester has two:

i guess Wilmington, Delaware does alright for a mid-size city

Delaware is the Preferred Gateway

The state of Delaware provides a unique and favored gateway to the U.S. marketplace. More than 500,000 corporations, limited liability companies, statutory trusts, and partnerships have been formed in Delaware. That number, however, is only part of the story. Delaware is the corporate home state for many of the largest, most successful and best-known U.S. companies. Nearly 60% of the Fortune 500 companies are organized under Delaware law. Delaware corporations also constitute more than 50% of all U.S. publicly-traded companies.

Greater Downtown Seattle is headquarters of Washington Mutual, Starbucks, Nordstrom, Expeditors, Safeco (moving in), Amazon....

Suburban Seattle/Tacoma headquarters include Microsoft, Costco, PACCAR (Kenworth & Peterbilt), Weyerhaeuser...all $10b+ if I recall. Plus smaller firms like Symetra, Eddie Bauer...

Downtown Tacoma has Russell, which includes some of the major stock indexes.

Can't count Boeing anymore, but the Commercial Airplane Group is based here, and the biggest local private employer with something like 60,000 staff.

By the way Fortune 500 is a list of US companies, so if you talk about cities outside the US it's Global 500 companies.

Neither Warsaw nor Manila are in the top 10:

1 Tokyo Japan 52
2 Paris France 27
3 New York U.S. 24
4 London Britain 23
5 Beijing China 15
6 Seoul South Korea 9
7 Toronto Canada 8
8 Madrid Spain 7
8 Zürich Switzerland 7
9 Houston U.S. 6
9 Osaka Japan 6
9 Munich Germany 6
9 Atlanta U.S. 6
10 Rome Italy 5
10 Düsseldorf Germany 5
Well, I wanted to point him that he asks in international forums about things that only concern american cities.

although no polish company makes to Fortune's Global 500, there are 4 in forbes Global 2000:
679 PKN Orlen Poland Oil & Gas Operations Plock
704 PKO Bank Polski Poland Banking Warsaw
1170 Pgnig-Polskie Górnictwo Naftowe Poland Oil & Gas Operations Warsaw
1406 KGHM Polska Miedz Poland Materials Lubin

Interestingly two of them are HQed in rather small cities, while other two are from Warsaw.

So Atlanta and Houston are tied as the second global 500 cities in the US? Seems strange that they would have more than even LA, Chicago, SF, etc. I would assume that those places would have more in their greater metros, and although Houston has a huge city limits Atlanta is fairly decentralised isn't it?

Well Houston won't be the second HQ city for long Halliburton moving out!! (YEAAAAA! let's party.) But if you look beyoud the Global1000 from 1001-1050 lots of them are located in Houston, those power, oil and gas trading company getting big really fast...and Enron still alive!!

NYC need to watch out for is those Chinese state own company, they are so huge Fortune just don't have data to put them to the list yet, and most of them are HQ in Beijing.
