So your no.1 city should be based on livability, things to do, sports etc.
The Midwest is not in the Northeast. The only city in the Midwest, that may or may not be in the Northeast is Pittsburgh, PA.

I personally don't consider Virginia to be the Mid-Atlantic. It is more Southern and has the most in common with West Virginia and North Carolina. The Mid-Atlantic I consider to be the "Lower Northeast". So I would say for the Midwest: Chicago, for the Northeast: New York, and for the Mid-Atlantic: Philadelphia.

Western part of the state has more in common with West Virginia, eastern North Carolina. Heck, West Virginia did split from Virginia back in the day so that sort of speaks for itself.

How is Philadelphia in the Mid-Atlantic though? Philadelphia is clearly part of the Northeast.

Pittsburgh is in PA which is the northeast. There is nothing midwestern about PA, not anywhere.

I don't know. I tend to be of the school that regions don't have to be just divisions on state lines, but have a cultural dimension too. So, when I visit Pittsburgh, for example, or for that matter, Altoona, Johnstown, etc, I know I'm visiting a part of the state that has more in common with Ohio and WV than say, NY and NJ. Catch my drift?

But for the question at hand, best? meh...Most important...perhaps New York.

Philly is the Northeast, founding the nation Philly, NY, and Boston were the North, when we expanded it all became the northeast, and it slightly split into Mid-Atlantic/New England. Both are northeast, but more defined.

Since when did the Midwest become part of the northeast? The northeast has two sub regions the Midatlantic and New England. Philadelphia and New York are the northeastern Mid-Atlantic cities while DC and Baltimore are the borderline/technically southern/neutral etc Mid-atlantic cities that are not part of the northeast.
