I agree too. It will be interesting to see how New Rising cities compete with older, established cities when population, gdp, amenities etc. start to match or exceed those cities. I also think that just because a city competes with one another does not imply they are evenly matched, or trying to be.

Your answer comes when you look at St Louis and compare it to Charlotte of the 90s and where it is today and where it will be in a few years. St Louis use to be a peer to Minneapolis and Denver. Better yet, look at Seattle of the 90s and it is easily considered as a national model for a up and coming city today.

Like I mentioned before, look at the convention business in Nashville and Indianapolis. They have left St. Louis. That doesn't mean they are superior cities. However, St. Louis will be catching up in the next few years.

Atlanta is a superior city but when it comes to live theater, St Louis runs with them easily.

I live in Vegas now and the club scene and total picture of nightlife blows St Louis out of the water. Is it a superior city? No.

This thread has veered way off topic from the original 3 cities. Time to close it.
