I honestly think Helena + Pierre would blow New York out of its pathetic island.
Imagine that.

Pffft! My bet is on Cheyenne + Fargo. NYC you next Tuesday only wishes it could compete with that Great Plains greatness.

I know, at least they have original names without adding New to it.

Honestly, I don't really understand the question.

LA+Chicago combined is more important to the world, but I would still rather live in NYC.

Anyways, I absolutely love Chicago...never been to LA, but I'm sure it would be a pretty cool spot...that said, I'd still rather be in New York.

As far as economic power goes...New York City would still be higher.


GDP

Chicangeles: $1,392.99B

New York City: $1,434B

Pretty effing ridiculous. New York is a titan...sometimes people don't realize just how far ahead of any other United States city it really is. Also note that money being managed by institutions like Morgan Stanley, JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs, Citi, etc are not included in GDP...which is pretty ridiculous considering New York is the #1 finance city in the world with London.

@ theoneandonlyLA: Los Angeles is good, but in the future it still won't be on the same level as New York.


I kind of like the thought of comparing combined groups of cities...Bosdelphia, Houllas, Las Veonix, San Freattle, Chiwaukee, etc would add a whole new way of arguing the same thing we argue about every single day! More! More I say! ... seriously.

We'll I'd go with Chicago and LA over NYC anyways.....even when they aren't combined. New York City may be large ,but it doesn't offer everything a person can want.

By overall topography, LA-Chi wins.
By being a city itself, NYC is a more powerful city.

LA/Chi-- two of America's biggest gang cities. Any Idea what the violent crime rates that city would end up with?

To be quite honest, the attitude in New York City turns me off. I should probably clarify and say the attitude in Manhattan turns me off. I know its a huge city but I just don't vibe well with the personalities there.

I don't know...LA is really the future. NYC is the past. But, only time will tell. I don't think LA has that far to go in catching up with NYC. Maybe not financially/economically, but culturally and intellectually, I don't consider them too far apart.
