Default Cities with impressive CBDs considering near by business districts?

My example would have to be Minneapolis and st. Paul or Los Angeles.

Which downtown areas are lively/ vibrant Considering similar areas near by?

Downtown Brooklyn is really nice considering it's in the shadows of Midtown and Lower Manhattan.

I'm not sure what you mean by similar "areas near by."

Do you mean edge cities?

A small big city in the shawdow of a big big city?

Downtown Oakland is pretty dense and vibrant, especially considering that it's just ten miles away from downtown San Francisco. San Jose has a relatively nice CBD too (a lot more action than many people realize, despite being small for the city size), considering there are two larger and busier CBDs just a 45 minute drive to the north.

Yes, edge cities or suburban downtown areas.

Ok.

Downtown Detroit has held on better than I thought it would, considering all the flight of commerce and wealth that has taken place to edge (suburban) cities such as Southfield and Troy.

From what I've seen in pictures, I'd say Fort Worth. Some say it's more engaging and active than downtown Dallas.
