Warren Buffet alone is influential to most of the Financial world. I would say Omaha is more influential now but Springfield was pretty influential in the past.

Springfield Metro should just be combined with Hartford, makes no sense they are separate

The reason they are seperate is because they are so close, that the central cities don't share a county because they are in ajacent counties.

Syracuse has to rank up there. Without Carrier Air Conditioning, the population of this country would still be centered northward. Sportswise, Syracuse University seems to have produced a good chunk of the sports announcers on tv.
