Philadelphia will always be a city if not THE city that "made" America literally. Philly is in everybody's history books no matter what country you're from or what you prefer. Anyone who graduated from high school or studied American history knows Philadelphia. There's just no way around it on this one.

I agree, it is a very important city. It just kind of gets swallowed up by N.Y.C. in that region. I prefer Philly to N.Y.C. if you want to know the truth. I actually would say that Philly is a more important city than Atlanta as well. What I am saying is that Atlanta represents an entire region of the U.S., for better or worse, and should be included in the top 5 cities that make up the country.

NYC is without a doubt the bigger city. But there's no city that swallows Philly in terms of Americas history. This is coming from a new yorker who now resides in Philly. You can't change history.

The question was not which U.S. cities are most important historically. Otherwise, I agree with you.

It wasn't. The question per the OP is which 5 cities make america? I only said Philly is a city that made America literally, that's all. The question also wasn't "which city swallows another city?" if this thread were about the biggest and most historic I'm sure you wouldn't have put Atlanta on your list.

Maybe this all boils down to interpretation...
