1. Washington DC
2. Boston

Boston takes history and education (assuming you're talking about schools) but Washington DC takes everything else, yes seriously. It's the second most important city in the Northeast yo.

Philadelphia. It is the second largest city in the northeast region behind NYC. The more people that live in a city, the more important the city is.

The importance of a city should not be measured by that amount of tourists or the median income of the residents. A city is most important to its inhabitants, who live and work in that city. They care the most about their city. Therefore, the higher population, the more important the city.

So in the world view you think that Philadelphia is more importnant than Washington D.C. the capital of the united states? or Frankfurt germany which only has a population of half a million?
