cool. Somewhat what I would expect. I wonder why Philadelphia is nowhere to be found? I also wonder if they are using whole CSA for their metrics.

Not to nit-pick but you forgot to highlight one. Atlanta at #40.

And Dallas - answer - they pre-selected 65 cities and ranked them, so those not preselected were not ranked, no way to know where they would have ranked

Overall, a good list. Nice to see that 6 U.S. cities made the top 20.

Probably most impressive is that 6 of the top 10 (or 7 of the top 12) are Pacific Rim cities. This region has gained immense ground and should continue to in both the short and long term. Probably gaining momentum more than anything, this shift should most benefit our west coast cities the most.

Interesting and very valid observation.

North: (Midwest)
6. Chicago

South: (Southeast/west)
33. Miami
38. Houston
40. Atlanta

East: (Northeast)
1. New York
13. Washington DC
19. Boston

West:
7. Los Angeles
12. San Francisco

I thought it would be interesting to put them in groups like this. Chicago definitely dominates the Midwest region.
