I'm trying to keep it about 3 million +. Tampa and Baltimore are just barely lingering below those marks. When you start including the smaller metros like Charlotte, Raleigh, Orlando, Jacksonville, etc it detracts from tiering the larger more powerful ones and spills the conversation into a flame war IMO not needed in this thread. For the purpose of this thread my tier are as follows;

DC

Boston

Philly
Atlanta
Miami

Baltimore
Tampa

Truth be told I didnt even want to include Baltimore or Tampa in this discussion but simply had to include Baltimore, the point is that it is not and never will be apart of the DC area. We simply don't need it to be relevant or to make a case for being the #2 in the eastern seaboard. I see our direct competition with Boston, Philly, Atlanta, and Miami and any of those can make plausible efforts to show why they deserve to be #2 over DC. Tampa and Baltimore cannot outside of maybe history for Baltimore and no way no how can Charlotte make any case to be #2.

Charlotte doesn't belong in this discussion, please refrain from bringing it up it detracts this thread. I want to see less focus on the metros below 5 million and more focus and conversation on the metros above 5 million. If you feel Charlotte, Tampa, Baltimore are being shafted by my requests then you are free to make your own thread for those places.

I agree with this list completey. For me, it was a tossup between DC and Philadelphia but DC being the head of government puts it above Philadelphia.

Population does not mean everything.

Charlotte may have less people but it punches above its weight.
In your tiers I would put Charlotte between Miami and Tampa

Then next time maybe you would better advised on the wording of your threads. If you really didnt want Tampa and Baltimore then YOU shouldn't have included them. You brought this diversion of YOUR thread!
