Richmond is my favorite city on the East Coast. I also like Baltimore and Boston though.

I think Boston was there for that too. I know New York tuck tail and ran

Midwest is not part of the Northeast.

They better have. It's the region's core city - the larger and older of the two next-door neighbors.

But this sort of confusion is common once you travel more than about 400 miles east of the city (Westerners don't get them confused). We native Kansas Citians who grew up there (in the area, you have "Kansas City" and "Kansas City, Kansas") constantly engage in a rear-guard effort to educate the clueless Easterners.

I just voted for my adopted hometown, which I see is tied with Chicago for second place in this poll as a result of my vote (as of 2/7/19).

And I note that, contrary to post #2, this hasn't become an all-about-New-York thread. New York may be like no other city in the United States, but that doesn't mean it's everyone's favorite city.

Why didn't you include Providence and Louisville?
Louisville lies on the wrong bank of the Ohio. Otherwise, it could be considered part of the Midwest, at least to a degree, but the state it's in has never been classed as a Midwestern state. But if Richmond, which is also not considered part of the Northeast, is on this list, then Louisville should be too.

Providence should have been included.

In many respects, the Mississippi River separates the Eastern US from the Western US. The Dakotas, Nebraska and Kansas are all considered part of the Midwest, so if the OP was including cities in both regions, Lincoln would fit.

So would Omaha, Des Moines and Wichita, none of which appear on it either. All three are bigger than Lincoln. Topeka and Lincoln are about the same size.

Revolt without a clear plan isn't really the same. That's the difference. America in principle, did not exist in their minds when that was going on. But, Boston's gonna stick it's head in everything (shocker).

I think you should look at a map!

What’s the best city in the MidWest? NYC, Boston, DC, or Philly?

In terms of livability, Philadelphia. Too me, it has the best combination of character, things to do, affordability, etc. That NYC wins by default in somes eyes is laughable to me, lol. Sorry! I love visiting NYC. But living like canned sardines, excruciatingly high cost of living, abismal Purchasing Power, grittiness, the NYC "freeze", isn't a quality life in my book (and I've been to NYC many times over the years). So, clearly, "the best" here in C-D is an extremely relative term. I know this will get me slammed, given that NYC is a C-D darling. And that's fine, NYC definitely has many great attributes. But its negatives are very glaring, IMO.
