Billionaires rising the cost of living in neighborhoods? Not so fast. Bill Gates lives in Medina, WA, true, a very upscale neighborhood, but it was before he built his compound there. Within literally a mile of his mansion are regular suburban homes in Bellevue. Granted, regular suburban homes in Bellevue are above the national price average, but so is just about everything else in King County, WA.

If you're a poster from the following cities these are the metrics that you take issue with:

Houston: density, public transportation, weather, tourism, CSA lists.

Dallas/Atlanta: density, weather, inland location.

LA/Miami: non contiguous walkable/sporadic nodes, per capita income, public transportation

SF/Boston: Taking a back seat to bigger brother

Chicago: city limits population aka Houston is catching up, flyover country, murder rates, CSA lists

DC: density, skyscrapers, food culture

NYC: being compared to any city not named London

Why should Chicago take issue with its CSA population? It's huge!

Because it shows how the Bay area and DC/Bmore CSA's are on its heels both in population and GDP. Actually I believe it's passed in GDP by the Bay Area.
