No, I think OP actually meant city limits. NYC metro population already exceeds OPs numbers by 5 million people.

Either way, all of those numbers are unrealistic.

mostly agree

one thing on this list - only Philly in the OP estimates is below its peak population - still don't see 2+ million again maybe 1.7-1.8 by then

NYC is super safe considering how large their population is. NYC is what about 9 million now, I don't think it will ever climb to 15 million with how expensive the cost of living is. I do agree Houston will pass Chicago in population sometime in the future

Yeah I highly agree Houston will pass Chicago in 30 years.

Major commercial development throughout the city (I-Live Megaplex, Amway Center Megaplex, etc)
Largest USTA national training center under construction
Medical City

Etc.....

LOL Orlandos metro is like 10 counties. Raleigh is twice the size of Orlando and a way bigger metro in a far smaller area.

And who would want to live in a tourist trap place where its hot all the time. I read some time back that Orlando has some of the most depressed people. Maybe its because you are always seeing people having fun on vacation

If Houston passes Chicago, Its going to be hard to comprehend that. I always picture Chicago being closer to New York size than Houston
