Pretty impressive.

In terms of Cleveland, I would put it far below Detroit, Seattle, Minneapolis and Pittsburgh, and a bit ahead of Tampa.



Ok, just do me one favor then: admit Cleveland should not be included on this Top 10 list.
Yeah that's 11. Wilmington is with Phily's MSA. And New Haven is one and Bridgeport is another. I can't remember which one Stamford is with. I would drop Atlantic City for one of the Connecticut cities. But then again, does Atlantic city have a port? If it does, then it becommes vital.

I don't know why Miami keeps getting mentioned. Other than the Kennedy Space Center, there's nothing of importance in the whole STATE (ok, the Air Force bases are important, but they could be moved).

A large population, lots of tourism dollars, regional headquarters (as in the vast region of latin america and the caribbean) of many international corporations, cultural/media powerhouse on a significant chunk of the world

Sabado Gigante is the most watched television program in the world and is filmed in Miami. Not to mention Miami is a suburb of NYC.

While I won't belittle what you have stated about Miami, considering the scenario, the tourism may not matter. However, the connections with Latin America/Caribbean may be important for trade.

I really question the first part of your post (source?), AND with the exception of the beaches, Miami/Dade pales in comparison to Broward & Palm Beach Counties now when it comes to being a "suburb of NYC" - to anyone with a fairly recent clue.

All of these recent "authoritative" pronouncements of the South that you have been making lately lead me to question just how long it's been since you have actually been outside of the Chicago area.

That is true. I think people undermine Latin-America, and it belittles Miami. I wouldn't call it a burb of NYC.

Well that's pretty darn important. There are weapons testing centers in Orlando. There is the port of Miami and other ports like the Port of Jacksonville that receive Toyota Auto parts for plants here in America. Miami is a HUGE city for US operations in Latin-America. Also you got the Hurricane centers down there that track numerous hurricanes, and hold numerous evacuation centers, and ports of entry for wounded people from poorer Latin-America and the Caribbean who need US assistance(think of the Haiti Earthquake, and then think of SoFla.)

Yeah I agree I wouldn't consider Miami an important city either everything is repaceable. It would be better to save inportant cities as in importance Miami would be at the end of the list. We could just move all the vacationers and retires. Actually if there were a nuclear war im sure miami would have no tourist and be half empty why save a half empty city.

Miami would probably be filled to the BRIM if there were a nuclear war. Where do you think everyone would be fleeing to if all the important cities were getting destroyed? NYC? Our most important city? Since Miami is so unimportant that's where everyone will be fleeing to.
