I don't, i don't understand how Seattle is in the same tier with Dallas/FW, Atlanta, and Miami. The size, GDP, Global influence, Diversity, national and international event holding and etc.

1. NY

2. LA, Chi

3. DC, SF, Houston, Boston, Dallas, Philly, ATL, MIA

4. Detroit, Seattle, Minneapolis, Denver, maybe Phoenix

and etc.

Your free to post more rankings because I don't see that.

Since we are on this topic, we should be discussing major projects in cities to get an ideal of what's going on.

Atlanta's beltline project.

Houston, Atlanta, Miami are all headed there IMO. Houston has the strongest economy, Atlanta and Miami have the stronger "identities" in terms of how the country perceives them, especially Miami.

Seattle punches over its weight and puts up very interesting stats.

so although it is smaller in size, it makes up for it in other ways.

You mentioned GDP

ATL is 10th in the country, Miami is 11th and Seattle is 12th. not much difference there:
10 Atlanta Metropolitan Area $272,362
11 South Florida Metropolitan Area (Miami) $257,560
12 Seattle Metropolitan Area $231,221

Nice info on the Beltline project though, how is that coming along

GDP was one thing out of 6 things that I gave an example of and it still was after. but overall Atlanta, Miami, and Dallas are on a different tire. How many rankings do we got to see?

As I said Seattle is the lead city of it's tire, And if you see Atlanta and Miami at the lower end of there tire than find, but Seattle is not in same tire as Atlanta, Miami, and Dallas. I just don't see that according to most rankings.

The Beltline project is coming along find, The first phases are the parks and trails. I believe in all the Beltline will be a cultural symbol for Atlanta. It's something very unique and it plays off Atlanta history and culture now. Historic rail town, Known for being green and etc.

Long terms,... Green: parks, Yellow: dense infilling "picture above", red line: trail and light rail path.
The light Grey: neighborhoods effect with infilling and economic growth.

well maybe the tiers need subtier cause I see Seattle somewhere in between the two groups.

The beltline project seems awesome. We need something like that here around 610

I would have disagree on this. Denver may not be a major player, but it is emerging. I would at least rate it a 3 tier city. A 5-6 tier city would be along the lines of Buffalo, N.Y. or Birmingham, Alabama that doesn't seem to want to improve(at least not in the near future).

Probably a western city, in Texas. Houston, Dallas, that whole area. Either that, or Some southeastern state, Florida, Georgia.

Sure DC makes things, it makes laws so more people can be hired and paid by the rest of us. Wait I think that means it a leach lol world's largest leach. DC is the capital of the US otherwise its a town in a foggy bottom.
