The rest of the top 10 (in no particular order):
Miami, Dallas, Houston, Boston, and San Francisco


Philadelphia is number 11.



Enough said. Case closed.
Atlanta is not a top 5 area. Enough said. Case closed.

There is nothing remotely top tier about Atlanta. At least not yet. The core city is way too small compared to the metro. There is not enough business/financial nor industry/manufacturing to bring into tier 1 or even tier 2. It is def. top of tier 3.

Nothing crazy about it. Atlanta is not top 5.

Top 10 yes, top 5 no way.

Atlanta is the capital of the Southeast, keyword being the eastern part of the south. I mean do you really think a city in western Louisian is going to be influenced more by Atlanta as opposed to Houston, just because Atlanta is the capital of the south. Atlanta's reach is limited to a portion of the south, mainly the southEAST, because in the American South, there is more than one major city, albeit Atlanta does hold the greatest influence among the souther states, but Houston, Dallas, and to a lesser extent, Nashville/Memphis and Charlotte all hold some influence on the true American South: LA, AR, TN, GA, SC, NC, MS, and AL.

Cleveland as a major nuclear target is laughable. Dayton is BY FAR the most important Ohio city militarily and would be the biggest priority.

Really? I bet you are not aware of the fact that Cleveland is home to one of our nations 12 FEDERAL RESERVE BANKS, is home to several large banks and other financial institutions ... the city is also an important port location and houses several vital offices for our U.S. military.
Additionally, there are missile silos that are a part of our national defense system located in metropolitan Cleveland.

So by that what about the other 11 Fed Offices

Philly has a Fed Office, A Federal District Court and one of the four US Mints plus a large port
