Give me galleria Houston and Lenox and Phipps for the shopping..

Since the OP didn't mention what sort of shopping was a requirement to be included, I think that Orlando has to be on this list. The entire place is like one giant mall.

NYC is the only city with good shopping.

Maybe Miami and LA.

Good going. Even a little bit of research shows more objectively where NYC truly stands in the nation and world. No need to be subjective.

According to this list:

1) NYC
2) LA
3) Las Vegas
4) Miami
5) Dallas
6) Atlanta

After that, it doesn't rank them.

Maybe so, but the title of the thread was cities in the US, so I didnt consider Milan.

If just going by high-end and luxury clothing/shoes/accessories stores like most people seem to be going by, then I'd say:

1. New York
2. Los Angeles
3. Miami
4. Las Vegas
5. Chicago
6. San Francisco
7. Atlanta
8. Dallas
9. Boston
10. Washington, DC

If encompassing everything such as upscale/luxury stores, vintage, local boutiques, home furnishings, art stores, and "alternative" clothing stores, I'd say:

1. New York
2. Los Angeles
3. Chicago
4. San Francisco
5. Miami
6. Atlanta
7. Las Vegas
8. Boston
9. Washington, DC
10. Dallas

Sorry.

I'm back to my old self again. NYC doesn't hold a candle to LA when it comes to shopping. LA owns that and everything else.
