NYC. Home of Wall Street. But LA is not far behind. Many many people move to LA to "get famous and make money", and want to live in the hills. Don't agree with DC at all. It is a wealthy city, but you don't necessarily go there with the goal to make millions. I'd say Miami and San Francisco are more "power driven" than DC is.

Not millions (how many do?) but if you're looking to advance your career to one of the highest pay scale cities, DC maybe first on the list ahead of NYC and LA.

When it comes to wages and highest income DC is rivaled by SF and in some fields NYC or maybe Boston. That's about it, LA is not even in the picture of those with regards to making the most income.

I think status and power would be DC. Love for money is everywhere. Obviously, when you have the largest population, you have the most people "loving" money. That love is certainly not exclusive to NYC or LA, though.

Eh, I don't agree. I don't think DC is that money driven. Status I can understand, but not money. Power driven only in politics.

There are many people who live in and around DC that are well off, love money, and not involved in politics, not sure why you have that impression. Maybe too much watching of the tube?

Wholeheartedly agree with this.

No I didn't get it from "the tube" or whatever. I used to live there, and I didn't see it the way you do. DC's not #1 or #2 to me. Not 3 or 4 either. Oh well.

Money: NYC
Status: LA
Power: DC

Not to say that all, or even most, who move to these areas are this way, but if I had to pick a U.S. city for each of those categories those would be the three. Not that it's a bad thing to seek success though.
