D.C. has to be the correct answer, yeah?

After that I'd say Boston because of the schools.

So the nation's capital is less important than Philly just because Philly has a larger population?

I agree with I believe the first poster, whoever said it was DC then Boston after NYC, then I would say Philly. Then I would go with Baltimore. Newark and Jersey City are pretty major, too. Camden is the city I would say is the shabbiest, not Newark. Newark isn't even that bad. Sometimes I think people don't even visit NJ before they say ignorant things. Parts of Newark are wonderful. Just like parts of Manhattan and Philly suck and so on. No city is perfect in any way.

I would even argue that going by importance to the US, the capital wins then NYC. But economically, NYC is better than DC.

I agree. Boston is also very pretty, which in the grand scheme of things doesn't matter but I think it's one of the nicest Northeastern cities to look at.

I love NYC. I lived in Manhattan for years when the cost of living was much less.

I think Philly has this one and let me explain why. Before NY was the big great city, it was Philly. Before DC was the capital, it was Philly. Boston has great history, but is still slightly below Philly in that regard in my opinion. Notice I said my opinion so don't get mad like I'm saying it like fact. Philly has always been one of the most populated U.S cities (top 5 in all census always). It has the second most populated downtown in the northeast (third in the country). To me other than NY Philly is the most important city in the northeast united states.
