It's so fun watching this poll. Los Angeles is close to having more votes than the other cities combined.

People in SF try so hard to convince the world that they're oh so prestigious, but it falls on deaf ears. Must be so frustrating hahaha.

Where does it say city limits? It does not.

In fact, neither Wealth X nor Knight Frank were specific about which geographic boundaries they used.

I read the entire report and it says nothing about city limits. Of course, you're going to convince yourself that it's city-limits to make yourself feel better about having fewer UHNWI than Los Angeles. I get it.

Anything else?

You have more multi millio dollar mansions but half of your metropolis lives in almost third world poverty. DC is the highest educated and wealthiest metro on median income in the nation INCLUDING New York. GOH with that nonsense. LA is just bigger definitely not more prestigious.
Exactly.

LA being a major port and media center and Chicago being the largest intermodal transit hub to the world's largest economy (as well as being a 2nd financial center to the US after NYC).

SF is a very wealthy city of course, and for it's comparatively smaller population it definitely punches above it's weight. However, it's wealth still doesn't amount to the size of cities like LA and CHI. SF has unfortunately become more of a "boutique" city in the last few decades.
What does any of this have to do with prestige? You say that SF is a "boutique" city as if that's the antithesis of prestigious. Boutiques are prestigious, big and powerful Wallmart is not. Tiny exclusive Monaco -- prestigious; big and important Mexico City -- not prestigious.
