One day, San Jose will rank above Boulder and Madison. I hope this whole technology thing in "Silicon Valley" catches on. In the future, we may even have computers in our homes.

Tier 1 - World Cities:
New York
Chicago
Los Angelas

Tier 2 - Large Cities With High Growth Potential:
Boston
San Fran
Philadelphia
Seattle
Houston
Dallas
Atlanta
Phoenix
Washington DC
Miami

Tier 3 Medium-Large Cities (Some with large growth some not):
Detroit
Cleveland
Minneapolis
St. Louis
Portland
Pittsburgh
Baltimore
San Diego
Denver
Tampa

Tier 4 Cities (Mid-Sized Cities):
New Orleans
Kansas City
Jacksonville
Charlotte
Indianapolis
Cincinatti
Columbus
Milwaukee
Richmond
Sacramento
San Antonio
Austin
Nashville

Tier 5 Cities (Smaller Cities):
Omaha
Madison
Oklahoma City
Orlando
Raleigh
Boulder
Memphis

Excellent list IMO.
Wel thank you!

New York is by itself in the top tier if you ask me.

Omaha has a population of ~400,000 and a metro of 800,000. Boulder has a population of <100,000. They do not belong in the same tier. In fact, Boulder doesn't belong in any of these tiers. It belongs in a tier of "small, pretentious cities that think they are bigger than they are". Move Omaha up a tier, drop Boulder altogether.

Miami should be in the top tier. It is considered a gamma world city (at least according to Wikipedia - Miami, Florida - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) and as I mentioned in another thread, it is the largest importer of many things into North America because of the port of Miami. Oh yeah, and most cruises leave from Miami. If you ask me it should be in the top tier with NYC, Chicago, LA, and possibly DC. But is there a limit to how many cities in the top tier?

Miami should belong in a list followed by Havana.
