But he never specified JUST structurally.In which case D.C. does have similarities that narrow it down somewhat.You and others are so focused on density and the built environment whereas it should not be because it should not even have to be debated that obviously Atlanta and DC share very little in its built environment and still no one has said anything to suggest otherwise.

Do you see Atlanta listed in the EXACT SAME TIER?!

Do you see that, Deluusions?

Can you see - on the EXACT same link you posted - that Atlanta is in THE EXACT SAME TIER AS D.C.?

Do you see that? Here, I'll post it again for you.

Alpha, Beta and Gamma cities (updated 2015) | Experience cities like a local!

Remember a few posts back when you so rudely scoffed at the notion that Atlanta might be listed in the same tier as D.C.?

Do you remember that? It just happened this morning.

And you boasted that D.C. is an Alpha world city?

Do you remember that?

And we asked you to provide a link to a study.

Well, you did. YOU JUST DIDN'T BOTHER TO READ YOUR OWN LINK.
